Manufacturing, engineering & automotive

Manufacturing, engineering & automotive – patent & trade mark attorneys

From small, independent UK manufacturers and engineering firms, through to huge multinational companies, our manufacturing and automotive sector group has years of industry knowledge as well as extensive mechanical litigation and IP prosecution experience.

Regardless of size, we understand the need for clients to have control over their supply chain, market focus and above all, continuous investment in research and development (R&D).

In recent years, we have worked with clients to investigate ways in which they can qualify for Patent Box tax relief for their products and services covered by patents.

Our team includes not only scientists with post-doctoral research experience, but also industry veterans who understand the challenges and pressures of being a client. We work across all areas of the manufacturing and engineering spectrum, including medical devices, aerospace, clean-tech, energy, automotive and their supply chains.

Manufacturing and engineering IP management

Clients value our approach to IP portfolio management. We pride ourselves on not only offering the highest level of worldwide patent registration and opposition work, but also on working closely with a number of clients in licensing negotiations, technology transfer and government contracts, IP audits, and related aspects of corporate finance.

Engineering, automotive, & aerospace IP experts

Whatever your sub-sector within manufacturing, engineering or automotive, whether you are a packaging or a metals manufacturer, an operator in the pharmaceutical, medical device, chemical, aerospace or automotive industry, or a supplier to any of them, our group of attorneys will work with you to maximise your IP portfolio.

Contact Mathys & Squire to discuss how our manufacturing IP attorneys can secure your intellectual property and help you on your journey to success – whether locally or internationally.

“We chose Mathys & Squire because Sean Leach, and his associate Andrew White, stood out from the competition for the proactive nature of their approach, and for their science and engineering knowledge. There was no need for us to educate them on the fundamentals of our technology.”

Hyperdrive

“Mathys & Squire have been with us since we began our transition from industrial markets into the automotive sector. In the years that we have worked with them, they have struck up a relationship with our technical team, and we know they can be relied upon for both their legal knowledge, and their technical expertise.”

Sevcon

“I would certainly recommend Mathys & Squire to any business wanting a patent attorney. The attorney we work with has great technical knowledge and is very good at grasping the features of the product we’re looking to patent as well as finding ways to overcome obstacles to help us achieve our objectives.”
