Registering your intellectual property is vital for safeguarding your creative work, inventions, or trademarks
Scroll to know more



Intellectual Property (IP) can be the result of research & development (R&D) activities and creative work performed by individuals or teams of individuals in specific contexts. To count as Intellectual Property and to be protected by Intellectual Property rights, each form of IP needs to fulfill specific requirements.

Patents, utility certificates, industrial designs, and trademarks creation usually follow a systematic approach. Patents and utility certificates are both related to technical inventions and thus follow similar creation processes. However, trade secrets and copyrights creation can follow a huge variety of possible processes.

Each IP type has its own registration process. Let's navigate together the one you need to protect what's uniquely yours.
