Robust engineering IP portfolio helps to secure valuable acquisition

Summary

We have worked with KLAW Products and Gall Thomson Environmental, two innovative subsidiary companies of engineering group Signum Technology, for many years.

Combining design, engineering, patent and trade mark expertise, our team has played an instrumental role in building a strong IP portfolio for these companies.

A key part of our work has focused on the filing and prosecution of patent applications for their safety-critical systems and valve technology for flow control applications, particularly in the safe transfer of hazardous and non-hazardous liquids, gases and powder. During the past 12 months alone, we have seen several patents granted and further applications filed in the UK and abroad. The combined portfolio now stands at more than 25 granted patents and pending patent applications.

Value delivered

Our team has been an important strategic partner in helping to create a hugely valuable IP portfolio for these companies, which has cemented their future on the international stage. Positioning Gall Thomson Environmental and KLAW Products in a strong position for future growth, their IP-rich status was a key factor in the recent successful acquisition of Signum Technology by global engineering group, Trelleborg.
