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.


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.

Cleantech & Energy

We have the depth of expertise needed to bring a multi-disciplinary approach to the project in hand.

Increasing investment and research are dedicated worldwide to make technologies of all kinds more resource-efficient, less wasteful, and to develop cleaner methods of energy generation. Cleantech and energy development can occur in any technological field and often involves multi-disciplinary innovation. So intellectual property support for cleantech and energy innovators demands a breadth and depth of technical knowledge and commercial experience.

Our clients

Our high-tech clients in the sector include: a manufacturer of evaporative cooling systems; a leading manufacturer of wind turbines; a sustainable construction materials company; one of the UK’s largest energy companies; the biofuels division of a multinational oil and gas company; a developer of high-performance enzymes; a nanotechnology company; and a developer of offshore wind turbines.

Our experience

Our cleantech and energy group includes attorneys from across the firm, providing expertise in all technical fields to support any cleantech or energy innovator. Between them, the team holds an array of doctorates and Master’s degrees in subjects such as chemistry, biotechnology, materials science, physics and engineering.

The team has extensive experience in areas such as wind, solar and hydroelectric power, fuel cells, biofuel production, carbon capture technologies, and energy efficient heating and cooling systems. In our work in these sectors we have the depth of expertise needed to bring a multi-disciplinary approach to the project in hand.

As a member of Cambridge Cleantech, an organisation supporting the growth of environmental goods and services companies in the Greater Cambridge area, Reddie & Grose is actively involved in one of Europe’s leading cleantech communities. This allows us to support cleantech innovation in one of the UK’s foremost scientific hubs, while keeping abreast of developments across key cleantech sectors. As just one example, our work for a major renewable-energy company has involved structural engineering, aerodynamics, mechanical engineering, heavy current engineering and electronics / software and control engineering, as well as building up a body of knowledge relating to electricity grids and grid codes. By contrast our work for a biofuels innovator has required expertise in chemistry and materials science.

We understand that, depending on the client’s business plan, obtaining rapid grant of a patent can be desirable for attracting investment or for fending off competitors. Our attorneys are experienced in taking advantage of the fast- track schemes offered by a number of patent offices around the world for patenting green technologies.

We also aim to assist our clients to take full advantage of the tax relief offered by the UK Patent Box. Where this is the primary aim of a client’s IP portfolio, we offer guidance and strategic advice to help them obtain the maximum financial benefit from their inventions.
