EP&C | Protecting your IP

EP&C assists startups in all matters concerning Intellectual Property (IP). IP is often deployed to support a company’s activities. Conversely, a company does not want to be confronted with IP of other parties that may affect its activities.

EP&C advises on how to create an effective IP strategy. Protecting your company’s activities is not limited to filing a patent application. We believe it starts with your EP&C attorney understanding the challenges you face. What are your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats? We make sure we know your business case so we can provide effective advice and support in IP matters.

Why work with EP&C?
Smart use of budget
We understand that at the start of your enterprise budget is not infinite. Therefore, you have to be smart to deal with the protection of IP and the associated costs. You have to make strategic choices. We will gladly help you with that.

We are used to dealing with areas of technologies in which a great many patents have already been granted. With plenty of obstacles en route, there is often little room to manoeuvre and little margin for protection. This is our forte, however, and our attorneys will help you navigate your way to the right solution.

Putting quality first
Just as you only get one shot at a patent application, we only get one shot at providing you with the right support and advice. This is why quality comes first, with teamwork as our driving force.

Keeping it simple
Patent law is complex and we consider it our responsibility to provide you with step-by-step guidance and information that will help you expand your knowledge and understanding of Intellectual Property rights.
