All partners of Nash Matthews (formerly Keith W Nash & Co) are fellows of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys and are Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office. We routinely act before the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office, the European Patent Office, the World Intellectual Property Office in Geneva, and the European Union Intellectual Property Office based in Alicante.
We all have technical backgrounds and cover between us a broad range of disciplines, so you can rest assured that we will understand your needs regardless of your technical area.
We provide a range of services from initial concept discussion, preparing an application, its prosecution and eventual grant, to handling contentious proceedings such as patent and trade mark oppositions. As you would expect, we can also provide advice relating to third party rights such as providing clearance services, assessing infringement risks and advice relating to pursuing invalidity proceedings.
Our style is to work closely with you, so that we can understand your needs more fully. In this way, we can help you to secure broad protection for your ideas, reducing the risk of a competitor designing around your innovations. We use our knowledge and experience to bring out the best in your intellectual developments and build a valuable portfolio of IP assets.
We understand that the value of intellectual property is greater than ever. We want to help you to maximize that value regardless of the size of your enterprise.
