UK and European Patent Attorneys specialising in Electronics and Electrical Engineering
We draft, file, prosecute, challenge and enforce patent rights in areas including computer-implemented inventions (CII), semiconductors, telecoms, physics, electronics and electrical engineering. It helps to seek the advice of experts who not only have a wealth of technical experience, but also understand how to maximise the scope of protection available.
Why use our patent services?
A granted patent lasts for up to 20 years and gives the owner the right to apply to the Court to stop another commercial enterprise infringing. Patents are therefore an important tool which can help to protect commercial assets in the form of a new product or process, or an improvement to an existing product or process. Patents can also have a deterrent value, causing competitors to avoid technologies which they know are patented or in the process of being patented.
For these reasons, a pending patent application or a granted patent can increase the value of an enterprise, sometimes significantly. It is now routine for potential investors in technology companies to check whether patents and any other appropriate intellectual property rights have been obtained.
