INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY FOR ELECTRONICS AND COMPUTING

Our patent and trade mark attorneys and IP solicitors are electronics, computing and communications specialists

For innovators in electronics, computing, and communications, these are unprecedented times. Our experience shows there is an increased need for flexible, efficient, and broad-ranging IT support. The systems we rely on must be ever more collaborative, powerful and adaptive to help us communicate more quickly and easily.

This extraordinary rate of digital transformation shows no signs of slowing.

We’re seeing huge strides in cloud and multi-cloud technology, edge computing and quantum computing. The appeal and application of blockchain, AI and machine learning only continues to rise.

Meanwhile, despite positive indications that a return to normality is on its way, telecoms, video communications, user interfaces and increased connectivity between a wider range of devices - the Internet of Things (IoT) - still have a huge part to play in our recovery.

However, as the level of innovation required to develop these technologies increases, so does the competition - and, by extension, the likelihood your inventions and ideas could be misused or misappropriated.

That’s where we come in.
