Intellectual Property

Blacks Solicitors’ Holiday & Homes Park team have an in-depth understanding of the parks industry and recognise the commercial value a business can accumulate in its Intellectual Property (IP).

What is Intellectual Property (IP)?

IP can be found in a number of different forms (such as words or pictures) and is the unique physical expression of an idea.

For example, if you have designed a logo for your park and/or have a particular strapline that you use when advertising your park business, that will constitute IP.

Does my park business have any IP?

Our specialist team can conduct a detailed IP Audit of your park business to ascertain all of the current IP in use by, and owned by, your park business.

This Audit will then assess whether it is protected, if not whether it should be protected, and if it is not owned by you (such as logos created by a design agency) what steps should be taken to gain any necessary rights to use the IP.

Why protect IP?

In today’s market brand identity is key to help you stand out from your competitors and if you have IP protection in place you can protect your unique designs and try and stop other businesses from copying you.

How do you protect your IP?

Some IP protection is automatic (such as Copyright) but some needs to be applied for (such as Trade marks). The right type of protection will depend on the creative work you are looking to protect. We can identify the suitable options available for you and guide you through the registration process.

What our clients say

  • The team at Blacks have given us legal advice on a number of occasions. Each team member we’ve dealt with has been very professional, efficient and helpful.

  • I have used Blacks for matters concerning residents on the park and for the sale of a park. Aimee Hutchinson in particular is an exceptional individual, it’s not often you receive feedback/advice out of normal office hours but with her it seems part of the norm which is what I like. The full team in Blacks seem very competent and I will for sure use them in the future.

  • I would like to extend my gratitude to Aimee at Blacks for her expert advice and guidance. I found Aimee to have expert knowledge in this field and she was professional at all times. One of the major areas where Aimee’s expertise was most used was in her assistance in formulating contracts, which were acceptable to me and to my Caravan owners. In addition, she was accessible and courteous at all times. I would not hesitate in recommending her to other people in the Holiday and Park Home industry.

  • We cannot thank Aimee enough for her support and guidance over the last 6 months. As a small family business facing the daunting journey of taking legal action due to non-payment of pitch fees and utility bills, this has been made so much more bearable by Aimee’s knowledge and leadership, guiding us every step of the way. We would definitely recommend Aimee and Blacks to anybody in the Holiday and Home Park industry.

  • I would like to thank Aimee for her expert advice in my first year as a park owner.

  • It has been a real pleasure working with Blacks – Nick and his team have really helped us in everything from acquiring another holiday park recently to supporting us with complex mobile home act issues. They always react quickly and understand what we are trying to do.

  • Nick helped me through the sale of my family’s Holiday Caravan Park & Residential Park. His knowledge of the industry meant that I was guided through everything and I felt like he was always at the end of the phone when I needed him.
