Underneath the hype
With backgrounds in physics, computing, engineering and electronics, our attorneys aren't fazed by current buzzwords like machine learning, virtual reality or blockchain. Instead, we relish the opportunity to understand how things work. After all, inventors are scientists and engineers. And so are we.
Our inherent curiosity and interest in tech helps us to formulate credible technical arguments to get robust patents granted for our clients. This also shines through in our opposition prowess, where our clients benefit from our successes in both offensive and defence proceedings at the European Patent Office.
Tech trends come and go, but our client relationships are built to last
Clients value the strong relationships we build with them. Providing exceptional service is at the core of our offering. We love getting to know them, their technologies and business directions to best advise them on their portfolio strategies. We're also adaptable to suit the way our clients prefer to work with us and are happy to integrate with their systems. This allows us to take a holistic approach for our clients' portfolios, balancing commercial considerations with scope of protection.
There are 10 types of people in the world
Regardless of whether you are one of those people who understand binary (or not), we give clear jargon-free advice. Our attorneys are recognised as some of the sharpest legal minds in Europe - we are also highly regarded for how we apply this knowledge for our clients.
We’re proud to be the first European IP firm to have European attorneys on the ground in San Francisco. This means that we're on the pulse of Silicon Valley and can easily reach our clients in the Bay Area. Our London headquarters is supported by our offices in Munich and The Hague which are ideally situated for oral proceedings held at the European Patent Office.
