The core of our practice is about obtaining and enforcing strong patents protecting the technical innovations that give you your competitive edge. We have long experience in preparing and successfully prosecuting patent applications across a very broad spectrum of technologies.
The business of pushing patent applications through to grant is bureaucratic, lengthy and often argumentative. Of course it’s our job to fight your corner but just as importantly we focus on making the process straightforward and manageable for you. That means being proactive. Officialdom will present us with problems. Wherever possible we will offer you solutions.
Where solutions are not possible we’re outspoken enough to tell you so. That comes with experience.
Patent rights are limited by national borders whereas business is increasingly global. The planning and implementation of international patent filing strategies is another key area of expertise for us.
WARNING: almost any non-confidential disclosure you make of an invention prior to filing a patent application can prevent you from obtaining a valid patent. If a patent is to be sought then your invention must be kept confidential at least until an application is safely on file at a Patent Office.
