Protecting and commercialising critical IP assets


With hubs in Europe, Asia-Pacific and beyond, we are known for the range and depth of our patents practice. We advise our clients in litigation, transactions, risk management and strategic matters, working with our global team and other firms across time-zones and jurisdictions to the benefit of our clients.

In the UK, Australia, Italy and France our record for acting before the courts in pharma related patent litigation – often on cases which are novel and key for the industry - is unrivalled. We are a trusted partner for contentious and non-contentious matters regarding products of the highest commercial value and are instructed by our clients on their most business critical assets, including a number of the world's top-selling pharmaceutical products.

We also advise on Supplementary Protection Certificates and work closely with our Competition team to provide complete commercial solutions. In the telecoms, technology and consumer products sectors, we advise in patent infringement and revocation actions and on strategies and negotiations for the licensing of patents and patent portfolios.

We do more than just manage proceedings in multiple jurisdictions: we work with our clients to set an appropriate strategy from the outset; we coordinate litigation in every jurisdiction involved, recognising the merit in obtaining specialist local advice where appropriate, providing access to the best local advisors while providing single point of contact for seamless, commercially relevant advice.
