Compared to more traditional fields of innovation, the law on protecting inventions that rely on software is especially fluid. Knowing what can be patented in different countries, and just as important, how to write a patent that will give the best scope in all the major jurisdictions, is a highly valuable skill. Our team drafts, files and prosecutes patent applications for some of the world’s most respected software and computer companies and as a result is continually interacting with patent offices throughout the world, allowing us to provide our clients in the IT sector with world-class advice and service. We have particular strength in navigating patent applications which were drafted outside Europe through the European Patent Office to find the optimum claim scope, whether the technology involves software and programming, computer architecture, image and audio processing, data retrieval and storage, encryption, e-commerce, or networking.
