We are delighted to announce that Mathys & Squire has maintained its ranking for the PATMA: Patent Attorneys and PATMA: Trademark Attorneys categories in the 2023 edition of The Legal 500. We are pleased to report that we have had a record number of fee earners individually recommended in this year’s guide.

Patent Partners Chris Hamer, Alan MacDougall, Martin MacLean, Jane Clark, Paul Cozens, Craig Titmus, Dani Kramer, Philippa Griffin and Juliet Redhouse, who have been listed in the guide for a number of years, as well as James Wilding, Sean Leach and James Pitchford, who are all newly ranked, are all featured in the 2023 edition of the directory. Joining our team of Key Lawyers this year is Laura Clews, our ‘extremely competent’ Managing Associate.

Alongside our patent practice, Mathys & Squire’s trade mark team has also been recognised, with Partners Margaret Arnott and Gary Johnston, as well as Managing Associate Harry Rowe, all being individually recommended. Of Counsel Rebecca Tew has been listed in the guide for the first time.

The firm received glowing testimonials for its patent and trade mark practices:

‘The most fortunate development of our business was engaging Mathys & Squire. Highly knowledgeable, professional and excellent value for money.’

‘My experience with the Mathys & Squire team has been outstanding. They are organised, responsive, and dynamic. They ensure they have gathered all of the relevant data by virtue of asking the appropriate questions and extracting information that I may have overlooked or not considered.’

‘The Mathys & Squire team has been able to effectively guide us on all of our queries.’

‘Mathys & Squire stands out above all other firms.’

‘Highly targeted advice and in-depth knowledge of how trade marks work. Holistic advice on manoeuvring through other companies’ rebuttals.’

Aside from the excellent firm-wide feedback we received, our Key Lawyers were also praised by all our clients and contacts.

Paul Cozens is my primary contact and he brings a wealth of experience that enables him to get to the key issues very quickly. He is supported by a strong team who always deliver high quality outcomes.’

Our main contact, Martin MacLean, has truly extensive experience in prosecuting patent applications through the whole process from filing to award. His support team are also highly competent. It is a pleasure to work with Martin.’

Laura Clews and Jane Clark have always been a delight to work with. They are both extremely competent and pleasant.’

Craig Titmus brings dedication, knowledge and humour to our meetings. He clearly has a passion for science and our specific products, delivering assignments with a competitive edge. Craig addresses issues head-on, and delivers quality, in-depth reports even when deadlines are squeezed from 3 months to 3 weeks without notice and without flinching.’ 

‘I have been working with Alan MacDougall for over ten years. Alan is very diligent in his work and has extensive knowledge and experience in the intellectual property field. He always responds in a timely and accurate manner and has been a reliable partner in my business.’

Chris Hamer’s unbelievable ability to analyse complicated concepts incorporating chemistry, physics and mechanical disciplines, and somehow render the interaction clear and easy to read, is outstanding. I can say with total transparency that the strength of our patent portfolio is in good part thanks to Chris.’

Margaret Arnott is clearly a deeply experienced and highly knowledgeable trade mark attorney.’
