IP protection for chemistry & materials technology
Our chemistry and materials team works with industry leading companies, universities and SMEs to provide proactive and comprehensive IP advice. Our specialisms include advanced materials, catalysis, ceramics electrochemistry (battery and fuel cells), metallurgy, coatings and surface chemistry, medical devices and nanotechnology, as well as coatings and polymers for all manner of applications such as packaging, 3D printing and synthetic rubbers.
Our attorneys prepare patent specifications and obtain granted patents at the UKIPO and the EPO. We have considerable experience of EPO opposition and appeal procedures, which enables us to propose insightful IP protection strategies both locally and internationally. Our team works hand-in-hand with other specialist technology teams such as automotive, software and electronics to provide you with a wide range of multi-skilled attorneys, all with different technical backgrounds relevant to your specific needs. We endeavour to act as an extension of your in-house team, build long-term relationships and provide responsive, clear and concise communication.
