Edinburgh (UK)

Edinburgh (UK) picture

From medicine to microelectronics, Scotland’s capital city continues to invent a future to match its illustrious past. We have had an office in Edinburgh for over 20 years. Since its establishment, the patent and trade mark practice has grown to cover all the sectors in operation in the east of Scotland, including life sciences (biotechnology and pharmaceuticals), industrial chemicals, electronics, software, food and drink, financial services, luxury goods and fashion.

The Chartered (UK) and European Patent Attorneys in our Edinburgh office have notable strength and experience in working with universities and other academic institutions. Bridging the gap between the academic and the commercial, our attorneys advise inventors, guide spin-outs and assist tech transfer departments to maximise the value of their intellectual property. Our team advises start-ups and large multinational companies alike, combining specialised scientific backgrounds with clear commercial acumen.

The trade mark team in our Edinburgh office advises blue chip clients on protecting their brands internationally. Together with the Registered (UK) and European Trade Mark Attorneys in our Glasgow office, they form one of Scotland’s largest trade mark teams.

Our office is situated in Edinburgh’s Exchange District, a short walk from Edinburgh Castle.
