Blakes patent lawyers and agents work closely with our clients to protect and commercialize their inventions. Our team combines industry experience, legal expertise and technical knowledge with a deep understanding of the science underlying our clients’ innovations, so we are able to provide our clients with strategic advice on the best ways to optimize their patents and to protect their interests. All of our patent professionals have engineering degrees, and some have advanced graduate degrees.
We provide counsel and specialized expertise on the protection of innovation, technology transfer issues and patent portfolio management matters. We regularly advise on patent procurement and commercialization, including licence agreements, collaboration agreements, and agreements with academic and research institutions.
Working closely with our IP litigation team, we also advise on national and international patent enforcement strategies and infringement defence, and offer guidance and advice on complex procedural and legal issues.
