About us

We recognise that intellectual property matters never exist in a vacuum; there are always wider questions to consider, such as the future profitability of an idea or the feasibility of a new technology. Our breadth of experience goes beyond the law and allows us to approach issues from every angle.

We also understand that no two clients’ needs are the same, and we tailor our service accordingly. We work closely with their team, operating more like in-house counsel, and we take the time to put ourselves in their shoes before offering advice.

Passion is vital too. Our attorneys relish the challenges of finding clear answers to often complex questions. The result is timely, pragmatic advice that our clients can act on. (With the added bonus for our firm of a consistent place in the top tier in independent surveys and a number of legal awards along the way.)

Kilburn & Strode is the collective trade name for a network of affiliated entities, that are separate legal entities under the name “Kilburn & Strode”, including Kilburn & Strode, LLP, a UK limited liability partnership and Kilburn & Strode US, P.C., a California professional corporation.


We work with clients from just about every industry sector. This means that day-to-day our attorneys are dealing with a hugely diverse and constantly evolving range of intellectual property issues…
