Intellectual Property

Nevile & Co. provide advice about protecting your intellectual property, trademarks, copyright or registered designs.

We will generally recommend immediate domain name registration and provide commercial and business advice with respect to the need for branding.
We can provide non-disclosure, non-circumvention and confidentiality agreements, and advice across a range of intellectual property issues.

Copyright does not cover intellectual property such as titles, names, short phrases and slogans, familiar symbols or designs, or variations of typographic ornamentation, lettering or colouring. This type of  property is often more appropriately protected by a trademark.

A trademark protects a word, phrase, symbol or design (or a combination of these), that identifies and distinguishes the goods or services of one person or company from those of others. Some things, such as more complex logos, may qualify for both trademark and copyright protection.

Nevile & Co. will advise whether you need trademark or copyright protection, and ensure the process is straightforward and finalised quickly.
