As a leading specialist in intellectual property law, we work with both local and international clients. From SMEs and start-ups to world-class institutions, corporate clients, academic and research institutes and high net worth individuals, we provide all of them with a comprehensive range of patent, trade mark, design and copyright services.

While our reputation for knowledge and integrity has evolved over 90 years, we also believe in being accessible and personable, delivering exceptional levels of service. Our pursuit of continual improvement in our service to clients and associates is reflected in our maintenance of ISO quality assurance accreditation (ISO 9001:2008).

We are globally recognised patent and trade mark attorneys representing the European intellectual property interests of a number of Top 50 US corporations and the worldwide intellectual property interests of many large multi-national companies.

We provide a cost effective, specialised counsel and undertake the preparation, registration, and prosecution of applications for patents, trade marks and other forms of registered IP.

And as a partner-led firm we love nothing more than to develop long term relationships with our clients by attaining a rigorous understanding of their business needs, so large or small, we can guarantee that every client receives an attentive and responsive service.
