Our client base is diverse and international, and includes academic institutions, blue-chip and global organisations and SMEs, spanning all industry sectors and technologies.

Our approach is to work closely together, to adapt and customise our processes and to implement innovative IP management strategies to maximise the value of our clients’ IP.

A detailed understanding of client needs comes from personal contact, teamwork and commercial experience. Many of us have practical experience working as in-house counsel for major companies and in academic environments, either prior to joining the firm or on ongoing secondment placements with key clients. We advise people from all walks of life and from all areas of our clients’ businesses, including scientists, project managers, commercial staff, board members and potential investors.

The longevity of our relationships is testament to the success of this approach. For example, 10% of our top 100 clients have been with the firm for over 20 years. In recent years we have been delighted to mark 20, 30 and 40 year anniversaries of client relationships.

The most professional team I have ever worked with. Excellent advice delivered in a laid back way that enables us as clients to participate in the most productive way.
