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.

Branding & Design


Protecting your brand does not have to cost the earth.

We understand that clients often have a fixed budget and we will work with you to develop the best possible protection strategy within it.

Registering the IP behind your brand has never been more important. Not only is it key when defending yourself against third party abuse, but it is also a guaranteed way of adding value and assisting with the generation of revenue.


Our clients

Our clients span all sectors and range from individuals to multinationals. On one hand, we act for clients with hundreds or thousands of trade mark registrations globally, and on the other, for start-up companies who are just starting to consider protection for their branding.

Our experience

Our team has extensive experience of registering and enforcing trade mark rights around the world and we make best use of our extensive international network of leading attorneys in all countries with trade mark systems to give you the best possible service.

The day-to-day management of trade mark and intellectual property portfolios is something we do extremely well. We can advise you on the choice of new trade marks, conduct global searches to determine the availability of proposed marks and advise you on their registrability.

However, protecting your brand does not have to cost the earth. We understand that clients often have a fixed budget and we will work with you to develop the best possible protection strategy within it. We are capable of working within restricted budgets to maximise your protection across the globe. We also have innovative fee proposals that are likely to be of interest.

There are various challenges associated with taking your brand abroad and understanding the different jurisdictions is imperative for getting the best protection. Reddie & Grose handles IP rights in many more countries than the majority of UK firms and we have a number of clients who file in over 100 countries.
