Legal Advice on Patent Protection, Patent Applications and Licensing

To make an invention a success, you need to control who benefits from your work. A patent provides the owner with a monopoly to exploit the invention. This can give you a huge advantage over competitors, whether you decide to exploit the patent yourself or license others to do so.

Patent Applications

It is very important to keep information about your invention confidential in the period before a patent application is filed. However, this is often the time that inventors are most keen to involve third parties in the development. We can provide non-disclosure agreements, which will protect you during this important time.


Patent Licences

We can also provide patent licences and assignments to help you generate maximum return from your inventions, and can advise on the validity, revocation and infringement of patents.


Examples of our patent protection work includes:

  • Acting in European patent opposition proceedings for the UK division of a health sector multinational.
  • Preparing a patent licence in respect of a novel item of surgical apparatus.
  • Providing patent clearance advice to a technology company in order to facilitate venture capital funding.

The advice they give is excellent and they are extremely easy to work with.
