In order to encourage and better manage the blending and cross over between traditionally separate technology areas we have also created a number of multi-sector technology groups to better match client requirements and provide teams who are highly capable of helping clients with inventions spanning very different technologies. These multi-sector groups include:

  • Digital Healthcare;
  • Energy & Renewables;
  • Future Transport; and
  • Chemistry & Materials.

Reddie & Grose work to help their clients create patent assets which help their business compete and grow. We understand that patents are a tool which need carefully considered and tailored strategies which match the different business requirements of different clients.

We work hard to gain a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses so that we can help them to achieve the best commercial outcomes. The unusually broad scientific and technical knowledge within the team means that there is always an expert on hand who can worth with even the most advanced technology.

We have long and continued experience of building patent portfolios covering an unusually extensive number of countries. This experience means we have designed work flows and trained teams that can handle large portfolios with parallel applications in many countries efficiently and cost-effectively.

With a strong international focus with clients and attorneys from around the world, and attorneys fluent in a number of different languages, our sector-specialists patent teams have extensive experience of advising research and development departments and a deep understanding of the key issues in an often complex legal and business environment. We help businesses in their due diligence and analysis of whether they are free to launch their products. We then protect their innovations by preparing and prosecuting patent applications – building portfolios of rights to protect their commercial interests.

We have considerable success helping our clients to enforce their intellectual property, filing opposition and cancellation/ revocation proceedings against third party rights, helping to defend our clients’ position in the infringement proceedings and defending clients’ rights in oppositions and cancellation proceedings brought by third parties.
