Memberships & organisations
Posy is a member of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA).
“We work with a team of three attorneys at Mathys & Squire, including Posy. They are all equally competent in their disciplines and have a unique way of looking at our business. Through their involvement in patent drafting, we have been able to capture technological improvements which we had not fully appreciated previously.
What they do particularly well is work together as a team to cover all areas of our work and this is a very strong point in their favour compared to other firms.”
