Patent and Other Intellectual Property Advice

Patent drawing of the Workmate

As an initial step we will advise you whether your proposed invention is patentable in the United Kingdom. If we advise that it is not, we shall refund any money already paid, save for the cost of the investigation.

If your proposed invention would be suitable for protection by design registration, either instead of or in addition to patent protection, we shall advise you accordingly and advise you how to obtain such registration.

If the name or logo under which you plan to market your proposed invention could be suitable for trademark registration, we shall advise you accordingly and advise you how to obtain such registration.

If you want protection outside the United Kingdom, corresponding foreign patent applications can be filed up to 12 months after your British filing date. We can explain the various options available to you and give you an approximate indication of likely costs.
