Obtaining Patent Rights
We are qualified to act for you before the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office, the European Patent Office, and the World Intellectual Property Office.
For protection in other countries, we have an extensive network of overseas attorneys with whom we work.
We are skilful at presenting arguments to the respective patent offices to maximise your chances of securing the broadest, useful protection, or alternatively can act to seek more focussed protection that can reduce the examination time at the patent office.
Accuracy in translation can be paramount to ensuring that patent rights are effective. We work with specialist translators who are skilled in their technical fields and understand the legal implications of such work. You can rely on us to ensure that you are well represented, whatever the language or the IP context.
We can advise on how to benefit from government initiatives, such as Patent Box, which aim to provide tax relief for companies involved in innovation in the UK. We can advise on how to secure patents that allow you to take advantage of the scheme, and the actions needed to make a declaration under Patent Box.
