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.

Patent Oppositions

Our attorneys have considerable experience acting before the European Patent Office Opposition division in the Hague, Munich and Berlin, defending our clients’ patents and attacking the patents of our clients’ competitors.

We work closely with you during the initial written stages of the Opposition to present the prior art and the relevant case law in the most strategic way. At the Opposition hearing itself, we bring all of the different arguments together to provide a robust defence or attack.

We can arrange for watching services to monitor when third party patents are granted and can be opposed, and can perform prior art searches to uncover the most effective prior art with which to attack third party patents.
