Manufacturing, Engineering & Automotive

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, cleantech, 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.

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.
