    Business as usual

    The United Kingdom referendum on membership of the European Union has resulted in a vote to leave. However, since the European patent system is not part of the European Union our role as European patent attorneys is entirely unaffected. It is likely to be several years before the full implications of this decision become apparent - in the meantime the United Kingdom remains a full member of the European Union and we continue to provide a complete intellectual property service Europe-wide. We are well positioned to take advantage of these developments following the recent addition of a full-service legal team including lawyers James Tumbridge and Paul Harris.
