Patents

Our UK team advises an extensive client list on all aspects of patent ownership, including strategies to maximize the benefits of patents, as well as issues of protection and infringement.

We work closely with patent attorneys both in the UK, US and internationally to assist our clients in their patent strategy and in the development and implementation of commercial licenses.

Members of our team are experienced litigators and act regularly in the UK and European courts in cases involving a diverse range of claims, from patent infringements to claims that a patent is invalid or has been wrongly allocated.

We act for companies from all over the world involved in a wide range of activities, including manufacturing, packaging, pharmaceuticals and defense products, as well as for public sector bodies and voluntary sector organizations. Our client list also includes entrepreneurs and individual inventors.
