Rapid changes in semiconductor technology make IP protection essential for companies competing in this global market. We aim to protect your products, giving clear, tailored advice on litigation risks when necessary.

We have extensive experience in semiconductor manufacturing processes and equipment in fabs, most especially in photolithography and metrology, as well as in the products themselves. Areas of particular experience include FPGAs, anti-fuses, CCD/CMOS image sensors, surface emitting lasers and packaging.  Beyond the microchip industry, we handle patents throughout the semiconductor field including solar cells, laser diodes, LEDs, and TV displays.

Our team includes physicists and materials scientists. We work in this specialist area both for corporate clients including camera producers, office equipment suppliers and manufacturers of photovoltaic technology and for hi-tech startups making use of a wide variety of semiconductor applications.
