Services

Our services are centred around intellectual property that can be registered. We protect innovation, design, and branding across all sectors of industry, and at all stages in the supply chain.

For each IP right we offer services covering strategic advice, pre-registration searches, registrations and renewals, oppositions and dispute resolution. We handle work throughout the world, working with local colleagues in over 100 countries.

Sectors

Our attorneys specialise in one or more sectors of industry, which enables them to provide quality advice with a commercial focus.

Our patent specialists have detailed understanding of the background technology, which ensures that your patent applications are prepared with the correct scope, reducing the likelihood of challenges from third parties and objections from the patent office.

They also advise whether other forms of protection would be more appropriate. Our brand specialists work with brand managers for leading brands and their advice is commercially focussed making sure that you get the best value from your budget.

Axial-Flux Motors – A Game Changer?

In June 2023, Mercedes-Benz unveiled a new concept car named the Vision One-Eleven. While paying homage to the iconic C111 from the 1970s, the Vision One-Eleven concept provides a glimpse into what the future of electric vehicles (EVs) might look like. In particular, the concept features ‘new’ type of electric motor – an axial-flux motor. The manufacturer of this motor (a spin-out from Oxford University) claims that, in contrast to the traditional radial-flux electric motors powering our EVs today, their axial-flux motor “requires one third of the space, one third of the weight and delivers double the torque density.” This is, of course, a big statement.

Polar Bears or Sea Turtles? The uncomfortable conflicts at the heart of the sustainability movement

Between scoffing mince pies and watching Die Hard (again), I found time over the festive period to watch David Attenborough’s latest documentary series, Planet Earth III. While the shots were predictably spectacular and the animals suitably fascinating, this time around the series focused much more on the destruction of the natural world due to human activity. The tear-jerking stories included a family of African elephants facing decimation following climate change induced drought; a Brazilian maned wolf and her pups narrowly avoiding disaster as their grassland home is burned to make way for agriculture; and numerous sea turtles trapped in floating plastic detritus.

Powering Tomorrow: Intellectual Property & Nuclear in the Age of Net Zero series round up

In an era defined by the urgent need for global sustainability, nuclear is one of the many technologies that must play its part. Throughout this series, we have looked at the critical role of intellectual property in driving innovation and economic progress, while shaping the course of the nuclear industry’s development. Published patent filings serve as a useful proxy for trends in innovation and investment. So, it’s certainly encouraging to see filings in the past decade beginning to return to levels last season in the 50s and 60s.

Powering Tomorrow #3: Modular reactors mark renaissance for nuclear patent filings

Companies active in nuclear fission-based power have historically filed relatively few patents. It is likely that this was because problems encountered in their nuclear power plant development were specific to individual power plants. Why protect the resulting inventions if they were unlikely to be used elsewhere? However, the development of modular reactors such as small modular reactors (SMRs) and advanced modular reactors (AMRs) could change this mindset. Suddenly, the product becomes scalable, capable of being built in factories and exported around the world. There is more potential to licence technology, or sell modular units, and therefore patents for this technology may become more valuable.

Powering Tomorrow #2: Powering Towards the Fusion Era

Nuclear fusion is regularly touted as the holy grail of sustainable clean energy: it produces no carbon emissions, uses readily available fuel, and produces vastly more energy per unit of fuel. However, for many decades fusion-powered technology has been a ruinously expensive pipe-dream confined to multi-governmental research projects or the realm of science fiction. The nuclear fusion research community have been proclaiming that commercial fusion reactions are “30 years away”, while resetting their estimate every 5 years or so.
