Legal Professionals

As Chartered Patent Attorneys and Registered Trade Mark Attorneys, we find that we complement the work of commercial lawyers and IP solicitors as opposed to providing competing services.

Working Together

In working with legal professionals our aim is to provide support to you and your clients at a level with which you are happy.  We can simply draft and prosecute a patent application through to its conclusion, or have a greater involvement with IP strategy generally.  We can work with your clients directly, or indirectly through you.  We are always happy to take the lead on specific projects or with particular clients if you are content with that arrangement.

Likewise, our own clients often have needs that fall outside of our remit, such as drafting complex transactional agreements, or other IP and non-IP related issues.  We find that being able to make positive recommendations to our clients on those issues can be instrumental in helping their businesses to flourish. 

We relish the opportunity to develop good relationships with legal professionals to help support their own services to their clients and to support our own clients.  We believe that good communication is essential and we would welcome the opportunity to meet and to discuss possibilities for working together.

If you would like to discuss working with us, please get in touch.

Due Diligence

If you are regularly involved with large transactional exercises on behalf of your clients, we may be able to assist with some of the due diligence, such as:

  • status checks on existing registered and granted intellectual property rights;
  • confirming the existence of registered and granted intellectual property rights;
  • performing freedom-to-operate searches; and
  • providing infringement opinions and validity opinions.
