Services

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.

Sectors

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.

Australian engineers develop “British weather-proof” solar cells

As countries around the world strive to curb climate change, it becomes increasingly clear that radical innovative energy solutions are needed if we are to stand any chance of achieving net zero emissions. A team of engineers at the University of Queensland may have provided one such solution in the field of quantum dot solar cell technology, achieving a near 25% improvement, and a world record, for the conversion of solar energy into electricity using quantum dots. Inventor, and Australian Research Council laureate, Lianzhou Wang, explains that the improvement “is effectively the difference between quantum dot solar cell technology being an exciting prospect and being commercially viable”.

Vertical axis wind turbines – Good enough to blow away the competition?

Whether you like it or not, the UK is a windy place. It is therefore not surprising that wind accounted for more than 50% of the electricity generated from renewable energy sources in 2019[1]. Modern energy generation wind turbines can come in many forms, in this blog I will discuss vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) which are becoming a larger part of the wind renewable energy market.

Digest Of UK Energy Statistics 2019 – Renewables provide a third of UK electricity generation

Demand for renewable energy has increased year by year.This growth is particularly due to the increased demand in bioenergy such as plant mass for electricity generation. Since bioenergy sources can be transported, the UK imports much of its biomass for energy generation. Therefore the distribution of renewable fuel use in the UK sees a majority coming from Bioenergy.

Next Generation technologies for a Low Carbon Future

The Grantham Institute has released an interesting report highlighting 18 priority technological innovations with significant potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This report reveals that urgent research and development in particular areas will be needed if we are to have a chance of avoiding a climate breakdown.

Wind and solar will provide 50% of global power by 2050, but this may still not be enough to meet the 2 degree climate change target.

The 2019 New Energy Outlook (NEO) report suggests that, in at least two thirds of the world, wind or solar already represents the least expensive option for adding new power-generating capacity.We discuss the report’s findings, and take look at what is being done here in the UK to meet the challenges posed by the report.

Are renewable energies catching up?

For years we have heard many reports discussing one of the most important issues of our time-Climate change. One obvious solution is the full change from fossil fuel based energy sources to renewable energy sources. In this blog we will explore trends in renewable energy consumption and generation, and whether renewable energy sources may overtake non-renewable sources in the future.
