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.

Obtaining Trade Mark Rights

We provide a cost-effective, pragmatic solution, tailored for the markets in which you operate.

What is cost-effective and pragmatic will vary country by country, and, for sub-brands, product by product. We know that the business needs will vary over time, so we will regularly review the portfolio with you to discuss the adequacy of the protection.

For example, in a country that has an expensive registration system, we may suggest filing trade mark applications in only the most important classes, cutting back on the classes which are of secondary interest or cover only one or two goods of interest to you. We may also look at whether that country is a manufacturing country where you would wish to be able to take action against infringers if you had the registrations. What is being made there and is the scope of your application sufficient? Have you registered any local variants of the house brand, Chinese character versions being an example?
