IP protection for automotive & engineering

Innovation sets apart successful companies in the automotive, aeronautic, chemical and marine engineering, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering sectors, with the development of new products and systems helping to secure and maintain strong market positions. Forward-thinking businesses recognise the importance of R&D but, in order to see a return on this investment, you need to be able to prevent competitors from exploiting your inventions. Our IP attorneys works with innovators in both commercial and academic institutions including multinationals, SMEs, start-ups, universities and spin-offs to protect their intellectual property. As qualified engineers and scientists ourselves, we’re perfectly suited to understand and discuss your technologies, and work closely alongside you to develop a IP protection strategy that best suits your goals and needs.
