Our peerless cross-border collaboration means that all of our people, irrespective of location, have access to work with more breadth and depth than can be said of many of our competitors.

As part of the continuing development of our business, we have ambitious plans to continue to grow our UK trade mark prosecution and portfolio management practice. Crucially we are challenging ourselves to ensure that the manner in which we deliver our trade mark services leads the market, and that we maximise the opportunities offered by our unique global platform so that it delivers unrivalled benefits to our clients.
