Case Studies

You wouldn't hesitate to insure your office contents and other assets; it also makes good commercial sense to insure your Intellectual Property against infringement. Without insurance, the financial burden can be tremendous. An average patent law suit in the United Kingdom can easily exceed £250,000 (per side).

The case studies below illustrate the importance of getting the right IP insurance for your size of business.
