Understanding how the different Intellectual property rights such as Patents, Trade Marks, Designs and Copyright overlap to protect your business can be complex and jargon-filled.  Our attorneys are keen to demystify the process and help you gain the IP knowledge which is relevant to your business.

We offer a variety of training sessions:


We are enthusiastic to share our IP knowledge and seminars are an opportunity to provide information to a larger group.  The seminars cover all aspects of Intellectual property and where appropriate we will partner with another service provider, such as tax advisers, to ensure that you receive the necessary breadth and depth of knowledge. You can choose to attend one of our regular open events or we can arrange a bespoke internal seminar, for example for your marketing or technical personnel.  Remote delivery via webinar or video conference is also possible.

In-house training

Seminars together with practical sessions based around your own or related IP can be offered internally.  The length of the in-house training can be adapted to fit into your schedule.  Each session can be tailored to the experience of the audience, for example patent focussed for your research team and trade mark focussed for the marketing team.

One-to-one sessions

We have also worked closely with our clients on a one-to-one basis, for example, to support the professional examination preparation of in-house attorneys or to provide background knowledge for in-house administrators.  If you are interested in such sessions, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
