Appleyard Lees is a long-established (150 years) firm of patent and trade mark attorneys, acting for a wide range of clients from spinouts and start-ups to multi-national companies and leading universities. We provide patent and trade mark services to clients throughout the UK, Europe and around the world, with particular specialisms in Electronics & Software, Chemistry & Pharmaceuticals, Engineering & Physics, Life Sciences & Biotechnology.
Whichever sector we’re working in, we realise that every client is unique. That’s why you won’t find a ‘one size fits all’ approach from us; instead we’re dynamic and adaptable, working around your needs and tailoring our service accordingly. While the services and expertise we offer are of the highest calibre, we aim to ensure our costs are always competitive.
Our team of attorneys offer a wide range of legal and technical expertise combined with real world commercial insight. It means we can make sure the right experts are working on the relevant innovation, design or brand – whether it’s creating a new logo, chemical entity, electronic sensor or medical device.
Aside from filing and prosecuting patent, trade mark and design applications, there are many other ways we can help, such as developing your IP strategy, negotiating licences, navigating complex patent landscapes, advising on mergers, acquisitions and tax efficient IP structures – all designed to add value to your business.
We are ranked in Legal 500, Chambers & Partners, IP Directory; several attorneys are named experts or IP Stars. We were shortlisted in 2016 as ‘UK Patent Firm’ and ‘Business Partner to the Chemical Industry’ (NW).[Highlighted can be removed if too long]
