Companies, designers and inventors can use intellectual property rights to protect their work. These rights are regulated by national and international laws and legislation, and restrict anyone else from having the right to imitate, copy or use that idea.

Typical intellectual property (IP) rights include patents, trademarks, designs and plant breeder's rights. If your company wants to launch a new product or service, it is wise to protect your intellectual property rights so that you always have something to fall back on. Alternatively, you may find that you want to avoid infringing on another company’s IP rights.

Whichever situation you may find yourself in, EP&C is here to help you protect your own intellectual property, defend your rights and help you establish new products without infringing on the rights of others. When it comes to plant breeder's rights, we work closely with the leading specialists in this field.
