We can represent you and your clients directly before the patent office and the courts in the UK and also before the World International Patent Office (WIPO) and the European Patent Office.  

Further afield, we work closely with agents in other jurisdictions to provide an end to end service.  While two attorneys may be involved at some stages, we endeavour to ensure that we add value to the process rather than being a mere cost. We regularly undercut charges of firms offering a "one stop shop" yet still maintain a high quality service.

We provide extremely competitively priced yet high quality filing, prosecution and maintenance services.  Where possible, our charges fall only at major points in the life of an application such as filing, examination and grant.  Unlike many firms, we do not charge for items such as reporting publication.

For direct clients we are happy to become much more involved and have expertise in developing IP training programmes, managing IP capture including invention harvesting and also developing and maintaining an IP protection policy/strategy. It isn't only direct clients who ask for our involvement at this level - we are increasingly being asked to work alongside existing advisors and attorneys.

Our advice is honest - we aren't afraid to tell a client or would be client that in our opinion they would be best served spending their money elsewhere such as on publicity, being first to market.
