Our services

We offer an initial free consultation during which clients can explain their needs, and we are then able to explain the options available.

Patent applications by their nature involve preparing tailored specifications the length of which tend to reflect the complexity of the particular invention. In this case such initial consultation allows us gather the information required to specify a fixed price for preparing and filing an application. We also frequently provide specific advice on patent infringement matters.

Often, European or International Patent applications (PCT) provide the best way of starting a portfolio of overseas applications. We generally file such applications about 11 months after making an initial UK patent application.

Sometimes an application for a registered design may be the most appropriate form of protection. We file UK and Community (EU) registered design applications and also provide advice on unregistered rights such as copyright and design rights.
