Have you ever come out of a meeting with a professional advisor thinking that things were rushed, that you had other questions you didn’t get time to cover, that the advisor was only interested in making a sale? You want to go back with more questions, but you hesitate because the advisor would be too busy and even if they did reply then you’d be getting a bill?

This is an experience I have had a few times as I have set up and grown my business.  When I started Scintilla five years ago, I had reached a point in my career when I “knew my trade”, but despite previously holding a senior position in a large firm I had not run my own business before.  I’ve had to learn a lot of new skills and decide how to deal with various new areas, such as company accounts, tax, VAT, payroll, HR, IT, sales and marketing, office management, to name but a few!

It is of course also important to control costs when seeking professional advice.  Especially when you are running a startup, unforeseen costs can have a major impact.

However, registering intellectual property (IP) rights is a complex process with many variables. Applications are subject to examination by official bodies and the timing and nature of objections is hard to predict.

Our new solution to these problems is SCINTILLATE, our innovative fixed price package which is aimed at tech startups and other SMEs, particularly those who are navigating the IP system for the first time. It provides the IP registrations you need, but more importantly the advice and guidance that makes sure your IP strategy is always aligned with your business; all for one fixed monthly fee over a long-term contract. So even if the proceedings for one of your applications becomes protracted and uncertain, you will have peace of mind knowing that your expenditure on IP is fixed.

At Scintilla, we always place an emphasis on listening to our clients and investing in long term relationships.  We are professional advisors, not sales people, and we are here to help our clients thrive.  The SCINTILLATE package allows us to invest even more in getting to know you, as well as helping secure the core IP registrations that you need.

To get this new service up and running, we are offering some special deals over the summer period.  So, why not get in touch and arrange a free-of-charge initial consultation?  You can also find out some more information about the service here. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
