We obtain patents to protect our clients’ inventions. We handle the entire patenting process, from initial assessment of inventions and preparing patent applications, through to securing grant of patents around the world.
We manage patent portfolios on behalf of our clients, ensuring rights are maintained and that budgets are met. We advise on patent infringement and handle the licensing and enforcement of patents.
We advise on all aspects of Intellectual Property. We register trade marks and designs for our clients, and advise on the management and enforcement of trade marks, designs, copyright and domain names.
Large organisations outsource patent work to us. For some we coordinate global management of portions of their patent portfolios, for others we handle European filing and prosecution. We also handle patent work in a “ghost” capacity for organisations that manage formalities in-house.
For companies in this sector we tend to provide a complete patent management service, reporting to commercial managers or heads of research and development. We aim to put them in a position to make well informed decisions about their patents without undue burden on their time.
Organisations that are involved primarily in research often invest in patents before a path to revenue generation is clearly established. We work with these clients to secure their position, whilst being sensitive to the need to balance expenditure with commercial progress.
Patent attorneys from all around the world engage our firm to handle patent matters in Europe. We work to help non-European attorneys adapt their global strategy for Europe and the United Kingdom, with a view obtaining optimum outcomes as cost effectively as possible.
