Chemistry and materials technologies

For chemists, or chemical engineers, IP is generated when a new material is developed, the manufacturing process is optimised or a new use is found for an existing material. We work with innovators throughout the supply-chain, helping to secure rights and build portfolios which protect their business. Commonly, this is by obtaining patent rights to prevent others from exploiting their efforts, developments and hard work. This increases company value and secures market-leading positions.

Our expertise extends to enforcement and competitor monitoring. This is highly valuable when you consider that in 2018 over 170,000 patent applications were filed at the European Patent Office, with around 40,000 of these relating to chemical technology. We proactively provide you with the knowledge you need to be aware of competitor patent rights to avoid infringing others’ rights and stimulate new innovations to be turned into assets — ensuring that you’re always ahead of the game.
