Our team, professionals in a variety of technical sectors and industry disciplines are experts in all aspects of intellectual property.
From compiling and filing a UK or international patent to negotiating licensing terms, we have the whole spectrum covered.
We have a strong commercial background in product development, branding, packaging and production, which allows us to champion innovative methodologies and take a hands-on collaborative approach.
This combination of IP expertise and commercial background, means we offer what no one else offers, can see what others don’t see, can quickly identify important issues and importantly can offer strategic and pragmatic advice that makes a tangible impact.
There is no point in investing good money in protecting a project when there is little chance of success !
That’s why we carry out a multi-point assessment to establish project viability and feasibility on every project that comes through the door.
Our multi-point assessment not only provides the insights needed to make the right decisions, it identifies commerciality and highlights, the pros and cons that allows us to provide honest considered advice on how best to move forward... or not !.
We ensure our clients feel confident of the resource and support available to achieve their objective.
Aligning ourselves to the needs of our clients, we approach every project as if it were our own. This means when our clients need help, assistance and support, they get it.
We go that extra mile to ensure our clients have all the information they need to fully understand the process, benefits and legal requirements.
We pride ourselves in listening carefully to understand our client needs, requirements and objective and only after thorough consideration do we highlight the options, the advantages and disadvantages and the reasons behind them.
Our experience in advising and directing our clients of varying size beyond IP is what really sets us apart.
We are committed to making sure our clients unlock the full potential of their creative talent and thrive beyond the IP process. This means when our clients need help, assistance and support, they get it.
We don’t just compile and file. We compile, file, maintain, advise, guide and assist all the way.
Our charges are based on the time we spend on the project and work on either a fixed fee or hourly rate undertaking. If we agree to work on a fixed fee arrangement, that is all our clients pay. There will be no bills for phone calls, professional advice etc etc.
We do not pass on soft disbursements (such as photocopying charges) and charge fees for monitoring deadlines, booking files, etc.
We have flexibility in relation to costs and are more than willing to discuss different charging models to suit budgets and time frames, including retainer arrangement.
We do whatever we can to save time and money, and tailor each project to meet a precise budget and deadline.
