Oxford (UK)

Oxford (UK) picture

Oxford has long been recognised for the academic excellence of its universities, and is now also known for successful automotive, healthcare, bioscience and publishing sectors. Our Oxford office has been established for over 15 years and its patent and trade mark attorneys work with a variety of companies and industries ranging from small, local start-ups and university spin-outs to large, overseas organisations.

Our Chartered (UK) and European Patent Attorneys have a diverse range of industry experience and knowledge, and specialise in the fields of electronics, software, telecommunications, photonics and energy (renewables and oil and gas). Our UK and European Trade Mark Attorneys advise a wide selection of clients ranging from publishers to production companies along with numerous household names.

The expanding team allows us to provide specialist intellectual property services to a range of businesses. Many of our attorneys are multi-lingual, which benefits our clients as they look to expand internationally or liaise with third parties. In addition to offering patent, trade mark and design right protection services, our attorneys and lawyers (solicitors) can advise on IP-related licensing, due diligence and contracts.

Our Oxford office works with several local initiatives that encourage growth for start-ups and SMEs, including the Government’s Growth Accelerator program.

As part of our efforts to streamline communication with clients and improve our green credentials, our office has successfully moved to paperless working, using a workflow model which will be used in the evaluation of a standard policy across the firm.
