Our Birmingham team of patent and trade mark attorneys combine their technical experience, legal insights and commercial acumen to work with clients ranging from startups, incubators and spin-outs through to global conglomerates, helping to protect and commercialise their intellectual property portfolios.
Surrounded by leading universities (Warwick, Birmingham, Nottingham and Leicester to name a few), the Midlands region has diversified greatly over the last 20 years. Boasting a strong industrial heritage, the area has shown significant strength across a broad range of sectors including: advanced manufacturing, engineering, agritech, AI, tech, and food & drink, with some of the best-known food brands based in the local and surrounding areas.
Over the last few years, a surge of funding into R&D from UK governments and institutions such as the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), means the region is the best equipped in the UK in terms of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) capability. Such investment into cutting-edge research, diversified sector growth and infrastructure developments (e.g. HS2 in 2026) has propelled the region to a uniquely positive economic and cultural position in the UK.
Local communities, which span early-career researchers to national brands, are brimming with innovation, ideas and creativity. Our patent and trade mark attorney team thrives on working with these innovators and entrepreneurs to protect and commercialise the ideas of tomorrow.
