Universities – patent & trade mark attorneys

We understand the pressures that higher education establishments face, especially with regard to time and financial constraints, and the subsequent need for flexibility and bespoke commercial advice.

Our university clients utilise and value the full breadth of our services, ranging from the drafting, filing and prosecution of patent applications through to assisting with spin-outs and freedom to operate matters. We are used to working within budget constraints and managing client portfolios for maximum cost and time efficiency.

  • Queen’s University Belfast
  • Cambridge Enterprise
  • Imperial Innovations
  • King’s College London
  • University College London
  • Warwick University
  • Huddersfield University

We also work with several prominent international universities, such as:

  • University of Washington
  • University of Illinois
  • University of Maryland, Baltimore
  • University of Alberta
  • University of Texas
  • University of Western Ontario
  • Oregan State University
  • Medical College of Wisconsin
  • California Institute of Technology
