D Young & Co is a leading top-tier European intellectual property firm, dedicated to protecting and enforcing our clients’ IP rights. For over 130 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 the depth and breadth of our collective knowledge. We offer clients the insight of a team that comprises trade mark attorneys, patent attorneys and patent attorney litigators alongside solicitors and Rechtsanwälte. Our multifaceted team enables us to provide clients with everything needed to protect their intellectual property in the UK, Germany and throughout Europe.

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 over 250 people, including over 75 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.

I have worked with D Young & Co for over 15 years. Prior to this I worked with other firms in three different continents, and none of them come close to the professionalism and dedication of D Young & Co.
