Appleyard Lees is a leading intellectual property firm. We provide IP services to the whole of the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, with specialist knowledge in all technical sectors including: Electronics & Software; Engineering & Physics; Chemistry & Pharmaceuticals; and Life Sciences & Biotechnology.
Whichever sector we’re working in, we realise that every client is unique. That’s why you won’t find a ‘one size fits all’ approach from us; instead we’re dynamic and adaptable, working around your needs and tailoring our service accordingly. While the services and expertise we offer are of the highest calibre, we aim to ensure our costs are always competitive.
Our team of attorneys offer a wide range of legal and technical expertise combined with real world commercial insight. It means we can make sure the right experts are working on the relevant innovation, design or brand – whether it’s creating a new logo, chemical entity, electronic sensor or medical device.
Aside from filing and prosecuting patent, trade mark and design applications, there are many other ways we can help, such as developing your IP strategy, negotiating licences, navigating complex patent landscapes, advising on mergers, acquisitions and tax efficient IP structures – all designed to add value to your business.
