Our founding partners have each been practicing IP law for 20 years.

Over that time period, we’ve travelled extensively in Europe and the Far East, and we’ve developed professional and personal connections in commercially-significant countries within which our clients have commercial interests. Whether pursuing international IP protection, enforcing IP rights, challenging others’ IP rights, entering into partnerships with individual, professional or academic enterprises, or developing and implementing strategies best suited to ensure maximum value of our clients’ IP assets, we have a strong international network of professionals we can readily access to ensure we get the job done right.
