The dissemination of knowledge is the lifeblood of university research, yet the patent system imposes a need for secrecy. We are highly experienced in advising technology transfer clients on strategies to deal with this conflict, whilst maintaining a pragmatic approach in view of wider commercial objectives.
We are comfortable dealing with inventions based on creative, academic science that crosses technical boundaries, and we can always provide a team of specialists with the required combination of disciplines. Our attorneys, many of whom have PhDs, will quickly earn the trust and respect of your academic inventors. They understand the need to balance commercial goals with academic pressures. We do not adopt a “one size fits all” approach: rather, we work together with our technology transfer clients to develop IP strategies designed to maximise protection for valuable assets, to support spin-out activity, and achieve investment.
