D Young & Co is a leading top-tier European intellectual property firm, dedicated to protecting and enforcing our clients’ IP rights. For over 125 years we’ve been applying our world-class expertise to take ideas, products and services further.
Why do clients choose us? First and foremost, it’s down to our depth and breadth of knowledge. We bring together the specialist services of trade mark and patent attorneys with intellectual property solicitors, providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all IP and related issues.
By collaborating and pooling our knowledge, we can be more innovative and responsive, as well as pass on significant cost savings to our clients. We place great value on flexibility as a key characteristic of the way in which we work, both in client-facing matters and how we operate internally. We see this flexibility as the key to promoting diversity in our workforce and ensuring inclusion for a broad spectrum of staff from different backgrounds. And, as the market gets increasingly complex, we’re continually evolving and growing our capabilities. The result? The broadest, highest quality and most cost-efficient IP service possible.
Who do we work with?
Our diverse, international client base spans all industry sectors including academic institutions, blue-chip and global organisations, research institutes, start-ups and SMEs.
Where are we based?
Our team of almost 200 people, including over 50 qualified attorneys and solicitors, is based in London, Munich and Southampton. Together, we’re committed to giving you the most insightful, innovative and commercially-relevant IP advice. Whatever your invention, technology or brand, we are committed to providing only the best IP advice available.
We are delighted to be one of the few IP firms to be ranked ‘top tier’ by all the major UK legal directories:
- Chambers UK
- Intellectual Asset Management Patent 1000 (IAM Patent 1000)
- Managing Intellectual Property
- The Legal 500
- World Trademark Review 1000
Of course, it’s not what we say about our own services, but what our clients say and experience that is most important. That’s the benchmark by which we should be judged.
