We are within easy travelling distance of the Patent Office’s premises in Newport and London.

On the patent side, we have expertise across all technical fields, and have great experience not only in filing and prosecuting patent applications through to grant but also handling opposition work, in particular before the European Patent Office. We can advise you on the patentability of inventions and conduct searches and advise on any potential infringement risks. We prepare and file patent applications throughout the world and we deal with any objections raised by the various patent offices to secure you patent protection. As part of our complete service, we also deal with issues arising after the grant of your patent, such as enforcement of the patent against other parties and revocation challenges. Our highly competitive and reliable renewals service enables you to keep your patents in force with the minimum of fuss.

With trade marks, we will assist you with the selection of appropriate trade marks, conduct searches for you and advise you on any potential infringement risks. We act before the UK Intellectual Property Office and the European Community Trade Marks Registry, and we have great expertise not only in successfully filing and prosecuting trade mark applications but also handling opposition matters. Once your trade mark is registered, we can maintain a watching service on trade marks and we can advise and assist on their enforcement. Our cost-effective and dependable renewals service makes maintaining your registrations easy and hassle-free. We have particular expertise in anti-counterfeiting matters and we have developed good relationships with Customs and Trading Standards.
