Decades of experience as attorneys, engineers and scientists in industry and research underpin the approach of our patent team. We are resolutely commercial and take time to understand your technology and your business.
Both European- and UK-qualified, our patent attorneys spend much of their time handling our flourishing practice before the UK, Irish and European Patent Offices. They appear frequently in opposition and appeal hearings and enjoy a remarkable rate of success in contentious matters.
We know from experience that innovation is a dynamic process that can generate a diverse range of creative outputs. Some of these are best protected with patents that cover the technical elements of innovation and invention.
We take pride in the quality of our patent drafting - our wealth of direct clients means that we draft often and that we draft well. Building patent portfolios that support growth, underpin core technology platforms and provide a competitive advantage in the global marketplace is an essential part of the value we offer. We know how to catch the spirit of innovation and to transform it into an asset. We make the complex patent process accessible, giving you clear and practical guidance on how to get the best protection for your needs.
Our patent consulting services can help your company navigate the overlap between business and IP.
