How can we help you today?

I want to know if my idea is worth patenting

Talk to us and we’ll give our expert opinion on the validity of a patent or patent application in the UK and around the world. We can also let you know if an idea you’ve got is protectable.

I want to protect my R&D investment

We’ll draft and file applications for you, so you can protect the asset which underpins your business. What’s more, we’ll keep you informed every step of the way, so you’ll always know what’s going on.

I want to protect my brand and its reputation

Our trademark application, preparation and filing service will help prevent abuse of your image, goodwill and reputation.

I want to guard the aesthetics of my product

Our design and copyright protection will help you protect investment in the look of your product.

I want to make sure my patent is granted

Patent offices almost always raise objections against applications, which can be hard to overcome. We’ll respond to official objections efficiently and comprehensively, ensuring your patent process is smooth and stress-free. Whether you want a patent in the UK, or anywhere else in the world, we’ll fight to get your patent granted.

I want to make sure I don’t miss important deadlines

You don’t want to have midnight panics about your patents lapsing, so talk to us about our monitoring services.

I want to make sure that my patents don’t lapse (or I need help if they have)

You want to keep your applications and patents current. We’ll guarantee that your statutory work is always completed on time, thanks to our renewal service.  If your patent has already lapsed, we can try to restore dead cases while minimising the effect this has on your business.

I want someone to handle the entire patent process for me

We can oversee your entire patent process: reporting publication, paying official fees and requesting examination and grant procedures, so all your formal requirements are covered. Your patent process will be in safe hands.

I want to make sure other people can’t disrupt my business

You want to eliminate threats from third parties – a wise move. We can file and run observations and opposition proceedings against cases of third parties’ patents, neutralising threats, defending you against litigious claims and protecting your investment. To head off potential threats before they happen, talk to us about our quarterly scanning watch services, which identify other inventions that could be deemed as comparable.

I want my team to learn more about patents

We can work with your team members to give them a grounding in Intellectual Property law.
