Venner Shipley recognised by IAM Patent 1000 in its 2021 guide

We are delighted to once again be ranked in IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners for Litigation and Prosecution in the UK, as well as being recognised for our success at the European patent office.

IAM recognises us as “a persuasive one-stop shop for innovators of all sizes from all corners of the globe.” The guide also highlights our impressive volume of prosecution work and market-leading AI practice, summarising, “[it] knows all the right plays in administrative proceedings and currently has 458 ongoing oppositions and appeals in train; it has also become an elite player in the AI space, processing more patent applications in the field than any other European firm.”

We are particularly pleased to see 10 of our attorneys acknowledged this year: Jan Walaski, Sian Gill, Paul Derry, Alex Brown, Pawel Piotrowicz, James Tumbridge, Allie Elend, Stephen Johnson, Richard Kennedy and Tim Russell. Partners Sian Gill, Paul Derry and Pawel Piotrowicz are also highlighted individually in the short list of recommended attorneys in the European Patent Office rankings.
