Applauded as being an “utterly unique” firm, our clients commented that we have an “invaluable” understanding and expertise in the science they are developing.

We are very pleased to note that all of our Chartered trade mark attorneys Clare Turnbull, Jane Martin, David Birchall, Yoann Rousseau, Gloria Parmesan and Camilla Sexton have received individual recognition in the PATMA: Trade Mark Attorneys category.
