SME entrepreneur or start-up, you will see the value of product and service innovations. You have innovative ideas that you want to protect legally. But do you also have the time and the knowledge to manage this properly? AOMB knows SME and the specific topics at stake in the field of Intellectual Property (IP).
Our SME specialists ensure that your ideas and (technical) inventions are protected and – where possible – that all financial possibilities are optimally utilised.
Make sure copycats are always illegal
Whoever comes up with a new product or service, should remember there is always a chance that someone illegally copies this. Copycats are a threat to your business. In order to ensure that copies are 'illegal', you must beforehand consider protecting your intellectual property. Think for example of registering your trademark, logo, product design or working methods.
How do you approach this? What rules and regulations are involved? And what should you do when someone is guilty of infringement? Leave it to our IP consultants in the SME business unit. It's what they do, day in, day out.

We work in a way that should appeal to you as an SME entrepreneur. Hands-on, no-nonsense, don't make it more difficult than necessary. We don't bombard you with jargon, but speak clearly and concisely. Intellectual property is complicated enough. We will assign you a permanent contact person within our SME team who you can always contact with questions. Even 24/7 if required.
Increase the value of your company Copying of goods and infringement of patents doesn't exclusively apply to corporations. It increasingly involves SME. With patent protection and trademark registration, you strengthen your position against potential infringers. Your company's value need not suffer and can continue to grow. So that you are in a position to consolidate your IP through licensing.
