The services provided by Bellvehí Innovation are as follows:

-   All the services included in the General Departments of the Firm

-   Innovation and Technology

- Industrial and Intellectual Property

At Bellvehí Advocats we believe companies that innovate and invent or obtain successful results from research are those that have a future, but it is also important that they export them.

However, these innovations, inventions or results must be duly protected, otherwise all the efforts made will be lost and others can then profit from them. This is why it is so important to seek suitable advice on industrial and intellectual property. It is important to know whether a work can be protected by copyright or whether an invention is patentable, along with the best strategy to adopt. Furthermore, this is one of the main assets of an innovative company and it is important to work with trustworthy advisors that can provide it with comprehensive services.

Bellvehí Advocats works closely with patent and trademark agents and adopts strategies and uses processes in its clients’ interest.

Bellvehí Advocats also has extensive experience in intellectual or industrial property infringement disputes both on a national and international level.

- Protection of Ideas, Technology and Know-How (confidentiality)

An idea, specific technology or know-how can be the main asset of a business and it can be a very strategic and important decision to keep them strictly private and confidential.

Confidentiality agreements must be well drafted and it is important that advice is provided and they are drawn up by professionals with suitable knowledge and experience. The same is applicable to collaboration agreements with suppliers or strategic partners when there is a transfer of confidential information and technology or know-how and it is very important to know the framework of this type of relationship.

Bellvehí Advocats has extensive experience in the legal defence and protection of ideas, technology and know-how both on a national and international level.

- Business Exploitation of Innovation

Coming up with a good idea is sometimes the easiest thing in the world, but after that it is essential to know how to exploit this idea correctly.

Bellvehí Advocats, with its vast national and international experience in commercial law, can provide advice on the best legal strategy to successfully exploit innovation.

At times, the best way to exploit an idea, invention or research result is through a commercial company, but another way is through a joint venture, purchase, franchise, distribution or agency agreement and it is not easy at all to make the right decision when the time comes to choose the best exploitation strategy.

As Bellvehí Advocats has both Tax Law and Labour Law Departments, it can provide advice on tax and labour issues related to the exploitation of innovation. For example, Bellvehí Advocats provides comprehensive advice on stock options and other bonus or incentive systems for partners or employees.

- Financing Innovation and its Exploitation

Getting a business project off the ground requires financing and usually self-financing is not enough.

Bellvehí Advocats provides advice and is very familiar with the different possible financing systems, such as venture capital, private investors, credits or loans, subsidies, etc.

Financing transactions require experience and expertise and it is added value for the client to rely on advisors who, besides providing advice, can also draw up all the necessary agreements, study the best tax advantages and negotiate with third parties in the clients’ interest.

- Marketing and Internationalisation of Innovation

It is not enough to be creative, innovative, inventive or to conduct research; you must also know how to sell this asset. Bellvehí Innovación helps to design the best marketing strategy (sale, license, agency, distribution, franchise, joint venture, merger, etc).

At present, the internationalisation of projects and companies is very important. Bellvehí Advocats offers the Bellvehí Internacional consulting services, which supports internationalisation by providing comprehensive services.
