Deacons’ experienced patent lawyers can help you develop a patent strategy that works for your business.
Patents can be central to innovation and growth for many businesses. The fast pace of developments in the international patent landscape, and increasingly complex legal framework, means that patent protection and litigation represent significant challenges for many of our clients. The strategic decisions you make concerning your patent portfolio can have far-reaching consequences for the bottom-line and the balance sheet.

All members of our team have backgrounds in science and technology and, combined with our legal training, we can provide you with clear guidance and practical support on searching, filing and managing your patents, including advising on ownership disputes, employee remuneration, drafting of patent policies and procedures, licensing and assignments. We will also help to enforce and defend your patent portfolio, as well as providing freedom-to-operate, validity/invalidity and infringement opinions.
