International capabilities

We’ve protected IP in virtually every territory of the world where IP is available. We are one of the UK’s largest filers of UK, EUTM and foreign trade mark applications, and directly handle the filing and prosecution of UK, EPO and PCT patent applications. We work on a daily basis with carefully selected overseas attorneys to protect your inventions and brands around the world. These attorney firms are chosen for their IP expertise, service quality, responsiveness, clear communication and cost. They share our commitment to adding value. They operate as an extension of our team and we take full responsibility for ensuring that the work they carry out on your behalf is completed to the highest standard.
