Whether you want patent protection in the UK or wider field, our team of IP experts, wealth of experience, commercial background and overseas partners can advise on the benefits of a patent and obtain the protection to secure your legal rights in your new idea, invention or product.
A patent is an intellectual property right granted by a country's government as a territorial right for a limited period. Simply, it’s a document that claims you are the legal owner of the content within.
Patents are vital when investing in and pursuing research and development. Not only do they make it illegal for anyone except the owner or someone with the owners permission to make, use, import or sell the invention in the country where the patent was granted, they are a intangible asset that can be sold, licensed and rented. Importantly they provide investors and potential licensees with confidence to collaborate with the patent owner, knowing their investment will be underpinned by a legal right.
