Aerospace – patent & trade mark attorneys

Commercial and defence aerospace experience

Our aerospace team has considerable experience across all fields of commercial and defence aerospace, from passenger jet engines and cabin fittings to military avionics systems and antiballistic materials.

We are experienced in drafting patent applications relating to aerospace engineering, and successfully prosecuting them through to allowance in patent offices around the world.

We are also experienced in contentious proceedings in the aerospace sector. Competition between rivals in the aerospace industry can be intense, and may result in the need to challenge – or defend – granted patents through oppositions and appeals before the European Patent Office and elsewhere.

Several of the patent attorneys in our aerospace team are among Europe’s leading individuals at representing clients at such hearings. We respond quickly and imaginatively to arguments raised by the other side. When we defend a patent, we are used to formulating claim amendments dynamically to make a successful outcome more likely.

The aerospace team works across the full range of subject-matter demanded by our aerospace clients, including:

  • composite manufacturing and assembly techniques;
  • surface treatment;
  • aircraft design;
  • jet engine architecture and construction; and
  • avionics systems.

For instance, in the avionics field, we have considerable experience in the areas of:

  • flight deck instrumentation and control technology;
  • air traffic awareness;
  • navigation and routing systems; and
  • radio and data communications.
