About us

We are a prominent full-service international intellectual property firm, uniquely with a leading team of patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys, solicitors and barristers providing a complete IP service to our client base.

Our Firm

Thinking differently

Our clients tell us that we’re different from other firms – it’s our approach that sets us apart. We look for outstanding people to work for us and we train them to think commercially and with a focus on client service. It’s not just about knowing the law and understanding the science – it’s about understanding and connecting all of the dots so that our clients can achieve their commercial goals.

We encourage our people to think independently and creatively while applying their legal and technical expertise, to ensure that our clients obtain the best possible protection for their ideas and brands.

What we do & who for

We offer the full range of intellectual property services covering patents, trade marks, designs, copyright, domain names and all other aspects of intellectual property, in all areas of science, technology and design. Our services extend far beyond rights protection, to enforcement, licensing and advice on strategy, covering infringement, commercialisation and monetisation.

Our clients include major domestic and international corporations, SMEs, universities and individual inventors. A number of our clients have been with us for many years – our input has helped to shape their success.




We work flexibly with our clients to meet their needs and ensure to provide a top quality service. We do this by continuously training our staff and by putting the right people onto each job ensuring that they have the skills and the time to achieve the desired outcome.


Our approach is centred around teamwork. We believe working together makes the most of our individual strengths and enables us to complete tasks more efficiently and effectively. We believe that integrating our team with that of our clients brings its own rewards for both parties.


We want to match your levels of ingenuity with our own. We promote a creative culture and attitude that embraces new ways of working. We think differently and strive to apply an innovative approach and creativity to everything we do.

What People Say

Environmental Policy

We take our responsibility for the environment seriously and are committed to actively reducing our carbon footprint.

We know where we have the potential to cause damage and so we proactively choose ways in which we can avoid this activity. Where we can’t avoid it we do our best to minimise it.

We have looked at all the activities that make up an average working week in an office environment and have policies for staff around travel, waste and procurement. Our offices are all in modern buildings and so are equipped to minimise their impact on the environment – our London office for example is carbon neutral. We don’t have bins by our desks so everyone is encouraged to recycle material into the correct containers as they go about their working day.

We expect all of our team to do small things everyday towards helping the environment and we hope that their collective effort will have a big impact long term
