INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY FOR ELECTRONICS AND COMPUTING

Our patent and trade mark attorneys and IP solicitors specialise in electronics, computing, and communications

These are unprecedented times for innovators in electronics, computing, and communications and our recent experiences have only increased our need for even more flexible, efficient, and broad-ranging IT support and our demand to make the various systems we rely on more collaborative and more powerful and to make the way we communicate quicker, easier, and more adaptable.

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

From an IT perspective we are seeing huge strides in Cloud and Multi-Cloud technology, Edge Computing, and Quantum Computing, while the appeal and application of blockchain, AI and machine learning only continue 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 enable us to develop these technologies increases, so does the level of competition and, by extension, the likelihood your inventions and ideas could be misused or misappropriated.

This is where we will help.
