If you’re innovating in this exciting sector, registering IP rights will encourage competitive product development while distinguishing and safeguarding your brand — protecting your investment or helping to secure essential funding to bring your innovative products to market.
- Medical Devices
In the medical device sector, subtle shifts in IP strategy away from a purely commercial approach are often needed to try and achieve the common public interest goal. International variations in precisely what can be protected must be considered at the very start of IP strategy development.
It’s increasingly vital for pharmaceutical innovators to obtain and defend a robust IP portfolio that protects their research and development assets. Of similar importance is the monitoring of third-party rights that might disrupt the pharmaceutical value chain to clear the path where necessary.
Software & Related Technology
Encompassing computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists, our breadth of experience covers sectors as diverse as automotive, blockchain, cryptography, cybersecurity, gaming, healthcare, telecoms, the metaverse and mixed reality, as well as consumer goods and services.
- Artificial Intelligence
When it comes to artificial intelligence, our specialist attorneys have a rare combination of experience and depth of knowledge having drafted and prosecuted a significant number of software patents.
Filing thousands of patents for one of the global leaders in the blockchain space has given us invaluable insight into how blockchain-, cryptography- and mathematics-focused inventions are assessed by patent offices around the world.
Electronics is the enabling technology for much of the digital age. From mobile phone technology to electric vehicles, our team has a vast array of experience in helping clients protect the results of their R&D investments.
- Games & Apps
Today’s global audience for games is huge — and growing. This trend, alongside increasing digitalization, means that it has never been more important to protect the significant time, effort and creativity you put into your work and developing your brand from competitors, pirates and copycats.
The proliferation of so much new telecommunications technology means that it’s important to protect your intellectual property in a way which provides effective coverage. It’s also vital to ensure that your patent infringement risk is fully considered in a sector where there are many significant players.
