Patent Attorneys and Agents
We listen to businesses and individuals who devise, make, sell and buy inventions. These inventions may be modern advanced materials, avionics, electronics, or methods using computers. They may be advances to classic machinery, tools or apparel.
We advise on patents and designs. We draft applications; represent people at the patent and trade mark office; and provide guidance on infringement and validity issues in respect of UK law.
Our service includes reviewing and preparing legal agreements which relate to inventions. Clauses typically mention trade secrets, database rights and copyrights in addition to patents and designs. We also conduct due diligence oversight of intellectual property rights.
