Whether you are a start-up with global ambitions, or a worldwide brand leader with a mature portfolio of intellectual property (IP) assets, then Page White and Farrer can help you to maximise the value in your IP from our offices in the UK and Germany.
We help UK and European businesses to plan and optimise their international IP strategy, advising on the best and most cost-effective routes to filing and obtaining protection across multiple jurisdictions.
We also work with companies based outside Europe who wish to obtain protection and exploit their intellectual property within the UK and the EU.
Working with some of the world’s leading brands and innovators, we administer significant portfolios comprising hundreds of patents, trade marks, design rights, company names and domains.
We have operated in 150+ countries, working with international law firms and IP practices outside of Europe to provide a seamless global service for our clients. We have particular expertise in cross-border issues such as post-merger integration, freedom-to-operate and anti-counterfeiting.
Our attorneys directly represent our clients in the filing and prosecution of applications before the European Patent Office, the European Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Property Office. Several of our attorneys are multi-lingual.
For territories outside Europe, we have long-standing relationships with firms of attorneys worldwide, including many firms in the USA. We use attorneys that have a proven track record in the particular technology or legal area required, and who will suit each client’s cost requirements for a particular activity.
