Our patent professionals have been given a rave review by legal directory IAM Patent with the release of their 2019 publication.
We’re particularly proud to be recognised for our working culture which IAM Patent describes as “bright and unstuffy” like our new office in London. Their observation is spot on. First and foremost, the wellbeing of our employees is our priority number one.
We are delighted with the positive feedback we have received, pointing out our aptitude to build long-term relationships and deliver to the highest standards, while managing to remain a people business.
‘Kilburn & Strode goes from strength to strength – its modern and effective operation is underpinned by a depth of experience and talent which is exceptional.’
We are the first European firm of patent attorneys with a physical presence in California, with managing partner, Richard Howson, doing much of the heavy lifting: ‘with particular expertise across a wide range of mechanical and engineering fields, he is “loved by clients” with good reason: it is almost impossible to find his blend of technical mastery and client skills anywhere else.’
The specific mention of several of our partners is well-deserved as the guide continues to praise “mechanical maven” Jim Miller for always “doing the right thing”, Nick Bassil and Kristina Cornish for ruling in the Life Sciences and Chemistry arenas with “outstanding prosecution practice” and “excellent technical knowledge”.
Alexander Korenberg’s “truly transformative patent strategies from artificial intelligence to cloud services”, and Nick Lee’s EPO advocacy in complex nanotechnology, immunology and diagnostics were recognised as something “to be seen to be believed”.
Second to none, our chairman Gwilym Roberts, combines ‘“a wealth of experience, attention to detail and a sound sense of judgement” – small wonder that his name is synonymous with fantastic engineering and physics advice across Europe.’
We couldn’t be more pleased with this write-up and the recognition of our firm as a top player in the league of IP.
