Inventions can be extremely valuable and, where appropriate, they should be protected by a patent.

Not every good idea is patentable. For instance, patent applications for Perpetual Motion Machines are still banned. However, a blue squash ball (as opposed to a black one) did possess sufficient novelty and was judged an inventive step such as to make it patentable.

We can advise and assist in the patent registration process. We can also act for you in enforcing your legal rights in the event of infringement.
