Chemicals

We understand the nature and commercial drivers within this sector and have been involved in ground-breaking work taking inventions to market through our network of contacts.

Our knowledge of chemistry makes the difference.  Members of our group have degrees in chemistry and many have industry experience.  Others have advanced degrees in natural sciences and biological sciences.  As a result, our clients in the chemical industry turn to us for patent portfolio development, licensing, patent preparation and prosecution, freedom-to-operate opinions, and patent litigation, knowing that we understand this constantly evolving sector.

We work across the world with leading organisations within the sector and members of the group have particular expertise in oil and petrochemical technologies, catalytic processes, polymers and composite materials, food chemistry, natural food supplements and absorbent articles. A member of this group is one of the world's leading attorneys in the field of ionic liquid technologies and represents clients in four continents.

Our in-depth experience, gained by working with chemical companies and networking with leading industrial organisations, provides our attorneys with insight into all of the issues facing the industry.  We have adapted and evolved to meet these challenges and are proud to count companies such as BP, Ineos, Petroliam Nasional Berhad, AarhusKarlshamn, Borealis, Sasol, Toray, Novartis, and the QUILL Research Centre amongst our clients.

We work with some of the world’s largest chemical and petro-chemical companies, food manufacturers and University incubators
