Three easy steps to protect IP, your most valuable business asset

Forum: Legal & Tax

Trade Secrets & Intellectual Property Workshop

Intellectual property is probably the most valuable, yet least understood business construct. More than 80% of the value of your business is intangible protected by intellectual property, yet you can complete an MBA at the world’s best business schools without taking a course on intellectual property! Accountants, lenders, and insurers prefer to provide services covering tangible assets, i.e. those they can see and touch. IP lawyers tend to focus on registered rights such as patents and trademarks, as they have fee structures that cover these, but not unregistered rights like trade secrets that can be your most valuable.

No wonder then that few managers properly understand how to use intellectual property to create competitive advantage in their businesses.

Intellectual property strategy is important because it builds and underpins value in your business, anticipates and mitigates (IP) competition issues, and protects people, process, platform, and technology.

What is the right intellectual property strategy for your business now, at your stage of development and with your expansion ambitions?

Join John Pryor and Canada-UK Chamber of Commerce for a workshop where will cover the definitions, the development of competitive advantage, identifying and capturing key assets and how to apply intellectual property strategy to your business .
