Patents, copyright and help designing invention

I just wondered if anyone here has experience/knowledge in this field.

It's for me; I have a design for a product which is totally unique.

I can draw a rubbish picture of it, I can explain how it will work, what it does and how you would use it, but, that is where my knowledge and expertise ends.

I would like to find a means of having it properly patented/copyrighted (or whatever), drawn, fabricated, tested and improved upon.

There are a few companies on the www, but obviously these are all a bit suck it and see, so if anyone can make a recommendation it would be quite helpful.

    Lots of useful advice on or you could try contacting The Design Trust. They are there to offer support to designers.

    Sounds very mysteriously interesting. I'm used to doing R&D tax relief claims for inventor clients, but I don't get involved in their technological doings. There is support available through the Smart scheme, and ERDF (possibly), and the Technology Strategy Board has info that might be useful;

    I love working with inventors, they have bags of enthusiasm.
