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.
Services we provide
We have an international reputation for work of the highest quality in this field, which has resulted in the acquisition of major new global clients in recent years. View types of patents.
We have an unusually strong trade mark team, with a much higher proportion of partners actively handling trade marks than most UK firms. View types of trade marks.
The appearance, shape or surface pattern of your company’s products, packaging and logos may be protected by design registration. View types of designs.
Our plant variety rights team is based mainly in our Cambridge office. View types of plant varieties.
Unified Patent Court
Our services include handling all aspects of revocation actions and supporting infringement actions before the UPC. As a completely new court system, the UPC will be heavily influenced by the case law and processes of the European patent office (EPO) so the knowledge and experience of our European patent attorneys will be central to any litigation before the UPC, whether acting as advocates, or technical experts in a wider litigation team.
