We are recognised in every respected independent legal ranking as one of Europe’s leading IP firms. Now, we've added another exciting chapter to our firm’s long relationship with innovation dating back to 1906. At a time when some are looking inward, our liaison office reflects our commitment to reaching out to pioneering and disruptive companies in San Francisco, the Silicon Valley and across the United States to help them with their European IP interests.
The United States and particularly the San Francisco Bay Area is home to some of the most globally successful and IP-rich companies on the planet. For these companies, understanding and navigating the global IP landscape is critical to their continued success and we aim to help them along.
Our west coast office also reflects our response to the current changing times in the IP landscape; to stay ahead of the crowd and rethink the way not only we, but law firms, interact with clients.
Harry Harden, Partner of the firm’s London office, is relocating to our San Francisco Liaison Office to spearhead growth and expansion of our Bay Area European offering.
Emily Collins and Tom Hamer bolster the firm’s offering in the United States by responding to market demand for European IP in California.
Following the recent expiration of Amazon’s infamous 1-Click US patent coupled with the Federal Circuit’s remarkable ruling in Visual Memory, Nick Shipp explains the need for more stricter specifications and how these decisions affect patent law in Europe.
Based in San Francisco, our team is working with clients in California and the U.S. helping them streamline and strengthen their European IP practices.
