Corporate and Social Responsibility

Relationships matter to us.

For clients, we are trusted advisors offering cost-effective and pragmatic solutions.

For the environment, we have a paper-light office, and in are the final stages of becoming paper-less. We promote and support cycling to work.

We are continually working to improve our impact on the environment and on sustainability. We are users of the netpositive supplier engagement tool

For employees, we are equal opportunity employers and promote, value and support self-development.

We are charter signatories of IP Inclusive, a UK-wide initiative having the objectives of promoting and improving equality, diversity and inclusion throughout the UK’s intellectual property (IP) professions.

For the outside world, we have a strong pro-bono presence, aiding those startups who are at the beginning of their journey and also those who are in need of help but are not able to pay for legal assistance. We provide free of charge assistance to those in need of litigation assistance and are referred through IP ProBono. We are also volunteer mentors and advisors for startups in accelerators such as MassChallenge and Fastforward.

We also support, mentor and advise members of S.E.E.D., a charity that provides education, mentoring, and work experience for entrepreneurs of social impact business ideas and those that are socially excluded.
