    The firm

    Established over 130 years ago, Phillips & Leigh has been offering a complete IP service to clients and associates across the globe.

    At Phillips and Leigh, we pride ourselves on working closely with our clients and associates to get the fullest understanding of their situation and matching both short- and long-term business strategies with the best routes forward to obtain the required outcomes for clients.

    Range of client services at Phillips & Leigh

    Phillips & Leigh serve a wide range of clients ranging from large multinational corporations to SME’s and single inventors. For some of our clients, there is a high level of client contact with the emphasis of tailoring our service to meet their individual needs. Our patent attorneys and support staff have backgrounds and experience in a wide range of technical disciplines. At present, we are composed of four attorneys, two partners and two associates.

    Our firm offers advice to clients in all areas of technology pertaining to patents, trade marks, designs, IP due diligence, domain name registrations, defence and enforcement of IP rights and IP portfolio management and filing strategies.

    Recruitment requirements

    At the time of writing, pandemic precautions make taking on a new recruit problematic in view of the need to inculcate the craft skills of patent agency on a face-to-face basis. Once restrictions have been lifted to the extent that face to face teaching is possible, Phillips & Leigh seek graduate entrants fresh to the IP industry or with some experience in IP or industry. Because of the range of technologies we handle, whilst we are happy to receive applications from candidates from all technical disciplines, flexibility and breadth of technical understanding are more important than in depth understanding of any one field.

    Professional development and training

    Phillips & Leigh personnel have acted as examiners for the UK examinations and the European Qualifying Examination, and one has sat on the UK Joint Examination Board. This allows us to give well focused training tailored to the requirements of the candidate and the examinations.

    We also encourage all staff to attend external courses to gain valuable skills from other experts in the profession.
