Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) is your most important asset as a founder.

Securing your IP rights is the most critical step you can take before any funding round, but it is not an easy process. Even experienced founders can struggle to understand how a constantly evolving business model will impact their IP protections.

Our Intellectual Property team will make sure your IP documentation meets funders’ expectations, helping you turn an idea into a funded entity.

Whether you have a minimum viable product in place or are still working towards one, our team will deliver robust, innovative contracts so you can begin hiring developers, IT specialists and freelancers.

Protecting founders through IP contracts

We are experienced in capturing the full scope of your IP and adapting it to meet various national and international legal and regulatory requirements.

 Our work typically covers:

  • Master Service Agreements (MSAs)
  • Intellectual Property Agreements
  • Intellectual Property Assignments
  • Intellectual Property Licenses
  • Founders’ Agreements
  • Shareholders’ Agreements

Our team can also help you understand your IP portfolio, advising on everything from what you should prioritise when securing IP protection to whether hiring employees from another country will change the protections you need to put in place.

We typically represent founders who wish to secure funding in a foreign jurisdiction, or who wish to use funding to hire overseas developers, coders and IT professionals.

Our experience in working between founders, developers and potential sources of funding is key to our success in improving documentation.
