corporate CLIENTs

As one of the largest and most successful intellectual property practices in the United Kingdom, we value our work with large corporate clients.

Our reputation extends internationally, as does our expertise, and we represent
major corporate clients across different sectors of industry and commerce.

We appreciate that, as a corporate client, your needs may differ from those of our smaller clients. We work hard to ensure the easiest path towards your aims and to be as flexible as possible in meeting those needs.  We tailor our processes to interface with our corporate clients as seamlessly as possible, so that our work product meets service level commitments and is delivered to clients’ automated correspondence tools and document management systems in ways that minimize the burden on in-house paralegal staff. 

We can provide a secure portal to our docketing system for confidential access to a client’s specific records and, where requested, we can offer our docketing staff to assist with in-house projects. We work with all the major e-billing systems.

For renewals, quality of data is vital, so we have a service agreement and data interface with CPA Global for renewal of patents, designs and trademarks, but we are flexible over clients’ preferences and serve corporate clients with a range of renewal service providers.

Our award-winning newsletters are valued by in-house departments to keep up with law and practice in IP.  They are written very much for the informed reader, with material selected to guide major users of the world’s IP offices in their day-to-day practice. They are a rich source of practical guidance on international IP protection including the PCT, Madrid Protocol and Hague registration systems. A selection of recent articles for corporate departments is listed below.

With offices in London and Farnham, and overseas branches in Beijing, Munich, Freiburg and Basel, we are well equipped to handle patent and soft IP matters, both contentious and non-contentious, on an international scale, and with deep technical complexity.
