IAM Patent 1000 recommends Mathys & Squire in its latest directory for leading patent professionals
The 2020 edition of IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals has been launched and Mathys & Squire is delighted to feature as a recommended firm once again. In addition to our firm ranking for prosecution, five of our patent partners have been singled out this year as recommended individuals: Jane Clark, Ilya Kazi, Chris Hamer, Martin MacLean and Craig Titmus.
The firm’s ‘hands on’ ‘A-Z approach to patent prosecution’ and ‘invaluable assistance in contentious scenarios’ is highlighted, with one source commenting: “They showed an excellent balance of lateral thinking, pragmatism and ambition for our invention. Some of their suggestions even went beyond drafting the patent and into ideas that might improve the invention itself.”
Jane Clark, who “develops new skills for new areas that we get involved in, is creative in finding solutions to difficult obstacles and is very prompt, with strong attention to detail and execution.”
‘Esteemed electronics expert Ilya Kazi “has particular skills at managing complex technical and procedural matters before the EPO and is seldom, if ever unsuccessful in matters he handles”.’
‘Chemistry maven Chris Hamer knows all there is to know about ionic liquid technologies and routinely shares his wisdom by lecturing to chemistry and chemical engineering students at Queen’s University Belfast.
‘The firm’s resident biotechnologists include Martin MacLean and Craig Titmus: MacLean showcases his knowledge on the targeting of bacterial toxins through his work for Ipsen Bioinnovation; while sustainable technology start-up Colorifix calls Titmus a “lifesaver” for his slick management of its fabric dye patent portfolio”.’
IAM Patent 1000 has become the definitive directory exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading patent services providers. The extensive research process for this guide was conducted over several months by a team of analysts, consisting of more than 1,700 interviews with patent specialists across the globe.
Featuring 48 country-specific chapters, analysing local patent professional services markets and detailing the firms and individuals identified as leaders in their respective fields, the tables and accompanying detailed editorial reflect the depth of expertise, market presence and levels of work on which firms are typically instructed. The publication therefore serves as a one-stop reference source for anyone seeking patent services.
