We use superb technology that allows us to create custom instructions, so whatever your IP needs, large or small, we’ll deliver.

We also make you these promises:

Guaranteed quality

Murgitroyd is one of just a handful of legal groups who have taken the extra step to earn ISO quality accreditation. We’re proud to have held ISO 9001 certification since 1994, and we continually work to maintain the extremely high standards that this denotes.

Why did we make the effort? Simply because it’s the most powerful way to guarantee all our offices, across Europe and in the US, offer our clients the same seamless, consistent, exceptional service.

There are many other reasons our clients turn to us — in many cases for years without interruption — for their global IP needs. Here are just a few:

  • Over 250 global staff
  • Over 40 years of IP experience
  • Quality verified and assured
  • Recommended by Legal 500

Our technology

Innovation brings strategic advantages. That’s why we’ve developed proprietary software that helps you control your own IP portfolio. The fully customisable Client Portal gives easy access to background and detailed information about your IP, as well as case files related to your filings. It lets you create your own docketing systems, generates fast, accurate cost estimates and allows you to issue instructions electronically. In short, it’s designed so you can use it in the way that suits you best.  You’ll also benefit from special discounted pricing.

We believe our Client Portal is the best in the industry. It’s more than a tool, it’s a portfolio management solution in itself. To make sure it stays that way, we’re continually updating and developing it. We also continue to innovate to develop future user experience improvements. And because it’s our technology, it costs you nothing.

Our Client Portal allows you to manage:

  • Online docketing
  • Renewals
  • IP dashboards
  • Cost forecasting and budgeting tools
  • Global foreign filing administration

Cost savings are a major consideration. But these work hand in hand with added value. We’ll not only identify IP opportunities, we’ll also consider how to turn them to commercial advantage.
