Our patent specialists comprise two broad teams – chembio and engineering/IT, who between them have the technical expertise to understand and protect any type of technology.
An intimate knowledge of our clients' technology is essential to ensure patents provide sufficient protection.
Our teams' technical knowledge allows us to liaise effectively with inventors and research teams. Because of our size and our fluid team structure, we are able to form multi-disciplinary teams on project-by-project basis, which ensures that each project is handled by the best people for the job.
Although the technology and processes can be complex, we communicate clearly and make sure you understand what you need to know.
