Murgitroyd’s team of attorneys has world-class experience across all commercial sectors.

Whether you’re a multinational corporation, university technology transfer department, law practice or start-up company, we can assemble the perfect team of specialists for your intellectual property needs.

G Edward Murgitroyd, CEO

Our attorneys not only have scientific or technical knowledge from their first, and in many cases, doctoral degrees, but also have a commercial understanding of the way in which intellectual property rights are used. Additionally, many have gained experience in the sectors we represent as technologists or in-house counsel or in other private practice roles before joining Murgitroyd.

Our attorneys’ breadth of expertise and experience means we understand the issues your business faces day-to-day, and truly speak your language.
