Business methods

While business methods (and models), such as computer games and social networking concepts, cannot be the subject matter of patent applications in their own right, their implementation often might involve the use of new technology which can. And it's our job to help you identify this.

If you have an idea that you believe may qualify for a patent application, we will use our legal and technical expertise to identify or bring out any technical aspects that may be involved in the delivery of the business method.

Our patent attorneys are fully up-to-date on the latest developments in case law, and can successfully guide you through an increasingly challenging environment in patenting business methods.

Some of the more common fields we are often asked to work in include:

  • Software
  • Networks
  • Security
  • Gaming
  • Financial Services
  • User interfaces

 

Our business method patent services include:

  • Drafting and filing UK, European and international patent applications
  • Prosecuting applications to grant
  • Filing and defending oppositions
  • Advice on enforcing your intellectual property rights
  • Recording patent assignments
  • Assessment of validity and infringement of granted patents
