Guiding your journey through IP law

 

No matter where you are in the innovation or patent process, our will team guide you through the IP journey step-by-step, navigating everything from IP agreements, applications, classification, search services, forms and fees, to renewals, exploitation, commercialisation, internationalisation, portfolio management and enforcement.  Our full-service patent process ensures that we provide our clients with top-tier expertise and robust advice.

 

Your specialism and our expertise

 

We know that in order to provide the best possible service to all of our clients, we need to fully understand the technical specifics of their products and inventions, as well as the challenges faced within their industries and technologies.

That is why, alongside their specialist legal training, our UK and European patent attorneys have a wide range of scientific and technical degrees. Their studies and PHDs include life sciences specialisms such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, agri-tech, green energy, and chemistry. Similarly, we have experts in IT & engineering areas such as electronics, manufacturing, automotive, digital, med-tech, semiconductors and telecoms. Our attorneys are also specialists in working with specific organisation types such as startups, corporates, universities, government agencies, hospitals and utilities. Find all our specialist sectors.

 

We focus on maximising the value of your IP

 

With a number of our patent attorneys having worked in-house within the intellectual property departments of multinational corporations, the team is adept at factoring IP strategy and commercialisation into their advice. This mindset further enhances our ability to assist in the active management, building and commercialisation of our clients' intellectual property portfolios. Our commercial focus for patents is built on a model of protection, exploitation and enforcement, and is perfect for all sizes of organisations from start-ups to global enterprises.

WHAT IS
PATENT BOX?

The Patent Box is a tax relief which was introduced by the UK government in April 2013, which offers companies reduced tax rates on profits from products and services covered by patents in order to recognise innovation in business. To qualify for Patent Box your company must have made a significant contribution to either the creation or development of the patented invention, or a product incorporating the patented invention.
