We advise and assist not just on UK, German and European Union IP rights, but also on global portfolio management and enforcement.

We have extensive experience in handling and coordinating our clients’ international IP portfolios and enjoy excellent working relationships with our network of local agents across the globe.

We understand local working methods, which necessarily vary from country to country, and are adept in fine-tuning our own instructions and working styles to get the best, most efficient service levels. Through our many years of experience we have worked with many overseas attorneys, and are well-placed to suggest the most appropriate representative for any given client matter, or to work with our clients’ preferred suppliers as may be required.

We are also pleased to offer an overseas service to foreign IP law firms in need of local IP representation in the UK, Germany and Europe.
