In basic terms, the function of intellectual property lawyers is to assist you with legal issues regarding intangible, but valuable aspects of your business, such as protection of your unique logo, new inventions and innovative strategies.
These three examples each represent an important subsection of intellectual property, namely trademarks, patents and copyrights.
All of them can contribute to your success, and intellectual property lawyers will assist you in identifying these aspects of your business and ensure they are protected by law.
Because of its intangible nature, the classification and registration of intellectual property can sometimes prove to be rather complicated. It is therefore vital to consult an expert on this subject.
Smit & Van Wyk Incorporated is a leader in this field, and our intellectual property lawyers have the necessary skill and experience to assist you with any advice you might need regarding the legal aspects of this matter.
