Withers & Rogers is one of Europe’s largest dedicated intellectual property law firms, with offices across the UK and Munich. Established more than 130 years ago, we remain as passionate as ever about making intellectual property work to our clients’ best advantage. Today, our clients include many renowned, innovative organisations from across Europe, North America and Asia.
Withers & Rogers has a breadth and depth of experience and expertise that we believe is second to none. In addition to our practice groups, we have a number of specialist groups, enabling us to pool our industry knowledge and bring added value for our clients.
We offer a comprehensive service that extends to both securing IP rights – such as patents, trade mark and design registrations for the UK, Europe and further afield – and advising on their exploitation and enforcement. Alongside, we provide proactive support functions that help our clients keep track of their IP, stay on top of its maintenance, and stay in control of cost.
Recognition of the long-term, strategic importance of IP is growing apace, and to help our clients make the most of their creativity, we can build strategies that embrace critical areas like innovation culture, due diligence, freedom to operate, invention management, and patent mapping, to name but a few.
All of our patent and trade mark attorneys are selected on the basis of excellent academic achievement and industry knowledge. This ensures our clients receive a service that delivers both technical excellence and commercial insight.
