The firm’s patent team advises on all aspects of patent protection and has a wealth of expertise drafting and prosecuting UK and European patent applications, as well as advising clients on infringement and validity issues.

The team also has experience of handling disputes, representing clients in patent oppositions and conducting appeals before the Boards of Appeal of the EPO. A significant volume of the department’s work comes from direct clients in the UK and overseas, and as a result, Cleveland Scott York’s patent attorneys have considerable expertise in drafting originating applications and advising on commercial strategy.

The firm can trace its roots back for a century or so, but the current firm was created in April of this year by the merger of Cleveland IP and Scott & York IP Law, and the new firm is embarked upon an exciting new phase of expansion.
