What we do
Applying for any sort of IP protection for the first time can be
daunting. We can help you navigate the complex system of legal
formalities you enter into. We will advise you on the level of
cover you need and what you can realistically expect to obtain,
bearing in mind what your competitors are doing or what has
previously been disclosed.
Looking closely at the technologies involved in your product or
service, we'll advise you how best to protect them in front of the
appropriate authority. We will also make sure that the many legal
requirements of any application are fully complied with.
Applying for protection can sometimes be a long and drawn-out
process. We will keep a close eye on the progress of your
application, making sure that deadlines are met and that requests
for further information are dealt with promptly.
Sometimes, simply having protection in place is not enough.
Should you have to defend your rights before any one of a number of
specialised courts, either in the UK or in other countries, we can
help. Wherever we can, we will represent you directly.
Alternatively, we can draw on a network of other firms of
professionals, and work with them, as a team.
