If you want to convert an idea into a product for manufacture, the first stage, whether or not you want to patent it, is to see if it currently exists or has been patented already.
We can carry out a patent search to see if your idea is new or is likely to be infringing someone else’s patent. This will hopefully ensure the path is clear for your new product.
If your marketplace requires you to obtain some form of legal protection, or if you feel that this is required to protect your idea, we can advise you as to the best route to take, be it copyright, patents or registered designs.
After we have completed the steps above, it is now time for us to prepare a project plan for you to approve. We will include all the stages necessary to take your idea into production. Each stage will be costed with clearly set out goals, milestones and deliverables. When this plan is agreed and the project is underway, progress will be reported to you as and when required.
