Who We Are
ipconsult was established in 2006 and was one of the first companies to offer an alternative approach to many IP practices. We have a core of employed staff, including qualified attorneys, technical assistants and patent and trade mark administrators, and a network of qualified consultants with expertise in various specialist fields, opening the door to flexible working.
What We Do
We are a small and nimble firm of patent and trade mark attorneys providing conventional IP related services as well as bespoke IP management and advice on a consultancy basis. We help clients protect, manage and importantly commercialise their IP. We regularly help our clients to secure business support, investment and grant funding to help propel their innovation towards the market in the UK and overseas and have been involved in the successful licensing and sale of IP assets. With commercial support from the outset we help a significant number of our clients extend their IP rights outside the UK and help them build and manage their overseas IP portfolios in line with their business strategy.
Where We Are
Our main office is based in the seaside town of Swanage, but our client base is throughout the UK. Our main office provides a central hub that supports our employees and consultants enabling them to provide a full service with the option of working remotely or at our office.
Our clients are mainly SME and start-up businesses, but we also represent a number of larger companies and we have a growing range of overseas originating work, mostly in software and engineering related subject matter.
ipconsult work closely with a network of professional specialists and businesses to identify new clients and assist existing clients and have been acknowledged as one of the top 20 firms filing new UK patent applications.
We are focused on driving innovation and continuously work to further develop connections locally and at a national level to enable more clients to successfully commercialise their IP.
