IP consulting













With over 20 years of manufacturing and marketing experience internationally, and across a range of industries, we are well placed to offer advice service in the intellectual property field. Whilst not being patent attorneys we can help our clients with:

  • extensive patent searches, and assessments, evaluation, and understanding of prior art.
  • development of an IP strategy which will be cost effective and still protect the clients investment and business future.
  • “designing around” problematic prior art.
  • drafting of patent disclosures which can be used for provisional patent applications prior to filing of detailed claims.
  • establishing contacts with a network of qualified patent attorneys across the world whose services can be procured at competitive rates avoiding the handling fees of local offices.

The following are just some of the successful patent applications I have been involved in over the years. In almost all cases, as the inventor listed in the patent, I have been closely involved in all stages of patent litigation and or appeals until a positive outcome, i.e. granting of a commercially significant patent, was achieved.
