Patent Attorneys

United Kingdom

The CMS patent attorney practice disrupts the traditional boutique approach to provide a service that meets the needs of modern business practice.  

Using proven, robust and efficient processes to manage portfolios through the patenting process, we pour care and attention into every detail, whether a portfolio’s value comes from its size or from the key nature of one or a small number of cases.

This is a people business, and we invest time in understanding the individuals we work with and their organisations.  Our clients’ patent portfolios are under constant scrutiny and clients’ need to know they are in the very best hands.  Our attorneys have long-held passions for the sectors we work in, with many having PhDs and / or industry experience in their chosen area. Always seeking to do things better, we have a culture of challenging each other and questioning how we work. This leads to constant improvements and the best solutions for each client.
Located as a part of a global law firm, we have immediate access to the broader legal perspective and an improved ability to understand and assess the risks associated with different strategies, further protecting our clients’ portfolios in the long term.
