Intellectual Property / IP Protection Lawyers FAQs

What is an IP lawyer?

An IP lawyer, or intellectual property lawyer, specialises in safeguarding creators' rights by navigating patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret regulations. Patent lawyers secure exclusive rights for inventions, while trademark lawyers protect distinctive symbols. Copyright lawyers manage literary and artistic works' protection, and trade secret lawyers safeguard confidential business information. IP litigators handle disputes involving intellectual property infringement. Whether in law firms or corporations, these lawyers ensure clients' intellectual assets are legally protected in accordance with UK regulations.

Why is a freelance IP lawyer a good way to resource your project team?

Intellectual Project can be project-based and often requires a level of narrower specialism, for example with music or for creative arts. Depending on the nature of the project, a freelance IP lawyer can be a good way to secure much more specialist expertise for the duration of the project rather than more general legal support you may have in place already.

Does Obelisk Support offer IP litigation lawyers?

Yes. Litigation is a rather specific role more widely used as a term in the United States. But yes we do have specific, pre-vetted litigation lawyers on our books.

How much does an IP lawyer cost?

A flexible IP lawyer on demand is a great way to save money on an IP Lawyer, as you employ that lawyer for a fixed term or for a fixed project. The cost depends on many things from the size of the project and the specialism. Do please give us a call.
