Competitive Overview Within the UK there are about 2,000 Patent Attorneys working out of about 100 firms, only this firm – specializing in the life sciences and University technology transfer.
Of these firms, the majority are in the greater London area. These firms represent our competition in the UK.
They consider UK Universities to be highly prestigious clients and so there is competition to acquire them as clients.
Potential Growth To service this market and obtain repeat business, our attorneys are not only qualified patent attorneys, but also technical specialists qualified to at least PhD level within a relevant life science subject and they also have postdoctoral research experience.
Our attorneys have therefore independently planned, executed and published investigative research in the life sciences in peer-reviewed journals. This means our attorneys have the technical skills to quickly grasp the nature, impact and development possibilities of academic and clinical research work and so inspire clients with confidence in our ability to represent their interests.
Over the last twelve years our firm has established and developed client attorney relationships with UK Universities, overseas Universities and start-up companies. Our ongoing objective is to assist in creating value for research conducted in University laboratories and its future strategy is to replicate its success in the UK in other countries by focussing on the protection of translational research in overseas Universities.
