We guide our clients step-by-step through all the legal and technicial complexities of obtaining effective protection of their IPR so that they can make informed commercial decisions to maximise their exploitation and business potential. We see our job as finding practical solutions for our clients’ business needs. If a client’s needs are best served by not incurring costs, we will say so. If action is needed, we will outline all options available including the most cost-effective strategies to meet that objective. This approach has enabled us to build long-term relationships with successful companies.
We operate a paperless office with an advanced IP case management system to assist the flow of work. We offer flexibility in communications – our clients can choose whether to receive documents by paper or electronically and we can provide alerts by text messaging if required. We can also hold Skype video/telephone meetings if preferred.
We are equipped to handle the electronic filing of UK, European and International patent and trademark applications, and have access to a wide range of professional patent and trade mark databases for use in novelty, infringement and clearance investigations. We can also call upon the services of experts in related fields to assist in providing a full range of services.
We provide clients with direct access to the team handling their cases, with direct telephone and e-mail contact links to the responsible people. Our attorney/administrator teams provide consistent handling of all stages of our clients’ work, from preliminary advice and guidance, to the drafting and filing of patent, trademark and design applications, prosecution, maintenance and renewal, enforcement, licensing and sale of their IPR.
