Our professional activities include all aspects of obtaining and defending IP rights around the world. This forms the core of our business and involves identifying opportunities for our clients to secure valuable protection, preparation of patent applications and ensuring their successful progress through the patent offices and defence against third party attack. We also provide professional services in trade mark design and copyright matters.

Infringement and validity opinion and advisory work including identifying and managing competitor patent threats also forms a mainstay of our practice.

We regularly appear before the Opposition Divisions and Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office both defending and attacking patents.

We are highly experienced in patent litigation and in co-ordinating pan-European and global litigation and the inter-relation between EPO opposition and national litigation.

Our extensive links with like-minded IP attorneys globally ensure the best interests of our clients are served internationally.
