Venner Shipley is a prominent full-service intellectual property firm, uniquely with a leading team of patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys, solicitors and barristers, providing a complete IP service to our client base. We work with clients from a variety of industry sectors ranging from major domestic and international corporations, to SMEs, universities and individual inventors at the forefront of technology and innovation. This means that our attorneys are dealing with a hugely diverse and constantly evolving range of intellectual property issues with specialist teams in electronics, technology, engineering, chemistry and pharmaceuticals as well as biotechnology. A number of our clients have been with us for many years and our input has helped to shape their success.

Our current portfolio has seen us provide pioneering advice on autonomous (driverless) vehicles, genome editing techniques (including CRISPR), battery technology for electric and driverless cars, the Internet of Things, cyber-security, gene therapy inventions, precision medicines, next generation 5G telecommunications, as well as augmented and virtual reality. In addition, we are heavily involved in artificial intelligence and machine learning, a sector that is currently expanding and which has the potential to revolutionise numerous different fields, from driverless cars through to genomics.

In recent years, we have also developed a successful IP dispute resolution practice and our team of barristers and solicitors has taken on a range of contentious and non-contentious matters, including taking a patent case through the High Court and the Court of Appeal. We are skilled at all types of dispute resolution including mediation, arbitration, opposition and court based litigation. In addition, our commercial lawyers are specialists in data protection, licensing and transaction matters complementing our full service offering.

A hallmark of our firm is the long-standing relationships we hold with a number of blue-chip companies which are the market-leaders within the industries or sectors they dominate.
