Challenge IP is an IP firm with a difference, based near Banbury in Oxfordshire and created by Christopher Ellis, ex-Head of IP for ICI, so he could use the knowledge and expertise gained in academia, industry, and in the IP profession to provide a first-class IP service to a select number of businesses.

Challenge IP can advise you on all Intellectual Property matters and will work with you to understand your business and develop a strategy to protect and enable you to benefit from your innovation. You will receive clear and practical advice, delivered in a cost-effective manner, and most importantly, aligned with your business objectives.

The philosophy of Challenge IP is very clear, and that is to make you feel we are truly part of your business, and treat your opportunities and risks as if they were our own. Partnering with Challenge IP will give your business high-quality IP advice, and at the same time the benefits of working with a smaller and more flexible team, enabling costs to be kept to a minimum. We also have close associations with a global network of legal and IP experts and non-IP professionals who can be called upon to help your business.

We would be delighted to come and visit you to get a feel for your business.

In the first instance please feel free to call so we can discuss how we can help.
