Filing applications and taking them to grant

We will file and secure your grant of applications at the UK Intellectual Property Office and the European Patent Office – something we do routinely. And we can liaise with local attorneys across the globe to help you obtain patents internationally.

How long does it take?

Going from point of application to having a patent granted can take several years. During that time, your business may evolve and your commercial objectives shift. But we stay in touch throughout – we can make sure the final outcome meets your needs.  

Where to file?

Patents are territorial in nature. And deciding where and when to file can be challenging. We can work with you to develop a focussed filing strategy, drawing on our  network of trusted foreign attorney firms if needed. So you can be sure that your foreign patent applications are in safe hands.
