Interim legal (IP specialist) services.

BRAND PROTECT’s interim intellectual property (IP) legal service offers your legal team an ideal cover arrangement for staffing gaps, and/or an extra pair of hands for larger or more IP-specialist projects. The service offers IP specialists who work at your offices for a mutually agreed period of time, and can be available on a full-time or part-time basis.  This enables your offices to work more efficiently by avoiding the additional costs of recruiting specialist IP lawyers on a permanent basis.

Our IP lawyers will work as part of your legal team. Examples of the specialist areas in which we can offer expertise are: patents, trade marks; copyright, design protection, contracting for IP issues (e.g. for franchise operations or business mergers or investment), domain name disputes, etc. A fuller list of services is available here.

A cost-effective solution to staff resourcing

This model offers IP legal services and the related solutions at a fraction of the price of traditional law firms. It offers the flexibility for your team to scale up or down as the need occurs. The pricing structure is based on a fixed price or hourly fee arrangement, whichever is mutually agreed. You will, of course, have the opportunity to meet and to ‘approve’ the lawyer who is to – albeit temporarily – become part of your team.

Many businesses with in-house legal teams are coming under increasing cost and resourcing pressures, often resulting from the unpredictable nature of day-to-day legal work. We offer high quality IP specialists who are available to contribute on a flexible basis. Their previous experience in their specialist area and of in-house legal work enables them to quickly and seamlessly join your team.
