“Mathys & Squire have been with us since we began our transition from industrial markets into the automotive sector. In the years that we have worked with Andrew White, he has struck up a relationship with our technical team, and we know they can be relied upon for both their legal knowledge, and their technical expertise.”


“Hyperdrive went out to market looking for IP support two years ago. As a growing company dependent on IP, this was a key strategic selection for us – we were looking for a partner we would be happy to work with long term. We chose Mathys & Squire because Andrew White and his colleague, Sean Leach, stood out from the competition for the proactive nature of their approach, and for their science and engineering knowledge. There was no need for us to educate them on the fundamentals of our technology.”
