The Rouse Difference We specialise in the most challenging business environments in the world.
Rouse goes where others have traditionally feared to tread. And we’ve been doing so for longer than just about any other law firm. We’ve long-standing experience and relationships in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, for example, because this is where our clients need us to be. In each case, our employees and offices work as a single, integrated team.
We’re part of the specialist teams that are helping create and advise on new laws. The Rouse Network doesn’t just advise on the law, it helps define it. Thanks to our reputation and the regard in which we’re held, we’re regularly asked to work with IP organisations to shape and draft new laws. Recent examples include customs regulation and trade mark laws for emerging markets such as Myanmar.
We’re more than just a service provider. Rouse doesn’t fit into the traditional business model – we’re proud to say we’re different. As an IP specialised services business focused on emerging markets, we wanted to model our business on the roles and responsibilities of in-house teams with a broad view of the IP needs of our clients.
We’re nice people to do business with. Everyone we meet comments on the Rouse Difference. We’re non-hierarchical, creative and results-oriented. We focus on getting to know our clients really well, working collaboratively in a true partnership to achieve their objectives.
We also build strong and long relationships with both our staff and clients – on average, our employees have worked with us for more than 12 years, while our key clients have been around for even longer. Our fees are also reasonable and totally transparent.
We care passionately about the communities in which we operate. Supporting the communities in which we work and, importantly, in which our employees live, is something we take seriously. We drive initiatives such as the BioEconomy Academy, which helps protect the natural resources of developing countries. Our IP Ambassadors are focused on bringing into the IP profession young people who might not otherwise have the chance. And Rouse Cares, which aims to improve the lives of others through sustainable initiatives, is a central part of our commitment. We don’t just talk about social responsibility or do it to add weight to our pitches. We do it because we care.
