Our Approach

Our main objective is to add value to your business so that you maintain a competitive advantage. We achieve that not only by protecting, maintaining, defending and enforcing your IP rights, but also by working with you to understand your business so that we can tailor our services accordingly and provide you with commercially relevant and jargon-free legal advice.

IP rights are valuable business assets; they are commercial and legal tools. By understanding your business and commercial aspirations, we can provide you with cost-effective IP strategies to deliver registered IP rights when and where you need them.

Each of our attorneys has at least 15 years’ post-qualification experience handling patent, trade mark, design and/or copyright matters; each attorney holds at least a first degree in a particular scientific and technical discipline; and, each attorney has extensive experience of working in private practice and/or in an industrial IP department. Our attorneys therefore possess the requisite broad range of legal and technological expertise to enable them to provide you with the necessary commercially focussed legal advice.

We have developed and are committed to retaining long-term relationships with our clients, we are approachable, we operate an open and flexible approach, and we are transparent in everything we do. We will not simply charge you whenever contacted; rather we encourage communication between you and us and we operate an "open door" policy. We may be able to provide you with an informal opinion on a matter without charging.

We will supply you with our detailed terms of business and charges for any on-going or proposed activities, upon request. We offer an initial free-of-charge 30 minute consultation so that you may discuss a matter with us.
