We work with a variety of clients, from SMEs to large multinationals, including Universities, Research Institutes and others. We also partner with law firms and other professional service providers.
As you might expect from such a varied client base, we have developed a flexible approach to meet their individual demands. Where needed we will draw expertise from across our Professional Services Groups to provide tailored expertise to produce robust, yet imaginative, commercial advice on time while being ever mindful of our clients’ budgets.
The nature of this expertise benefits the full lifecycle of our clients’ offerings. On the one hand we may consider freedom to operate issues, including opposing or challenging others’ patents where appropriate. On the other, we draft and prosecute patent applications to obtain valuable protection, supplemented by the management of client portfolios including the renewal of rights as well as their licensing and enforcement by litigation. We also assist our clients in other commercial arenas by performing due diligence operations and in obtaining IP valuations.
For those with unfortunate experiences of losing rights we also provide an industry leading restoration and appeals service. We also provide adept advice in cases at the edge of patentability such as business methods and computer implemented inventions.
