At Appleyard Lees we provide support to clients with and without separate in-house IP departments.
Over the years, our attorneys have demonstrated that they have the professional and communication skills to win the confidence of both the research and development (R&D) staff and IP professionals. Usually, we are the primary work producer but we have also frequently been used to provide an independent, external viewpoint on specific matters such as opposition and infringement assessments.
The support can be provided remotely or as a scheduled on-site visit, for example:
- drop-in sessions for engineers to discuss potential new innovations
- catch-up meetings to work through outstanding deadlines
We are flexible and will adapt to your working practice and needs.
