Kilburn & Strode is a top-tier European intellectual property firm that protects value for some of the world’s most innovative organisations.
For more than 100 years, we have been trusted to provide strategic IP advice and navigate the complex world of IP for an impressive roster of clients of all sizes, including leading brands and some of the world’s most impressive innovators.
Whether obtaining protection, clearing the path or defending key technologies; we offer a unique combination of experience, technical expertise and, most importantly, an approach that makes us a true extension of our clients’ teams. We have technical, legal and commercial nous second to none and we combine this with an attitude that makes working together easy. Many firms have competent patent and trade mark attorneys, but we distinguish ourselves by our complete focus on building deep relationships.
We are often called upon by our start-up clients to devise commercially-focussed IP strategies that align with the objectives of the business. This includes patent drafting and filing strategies, as well as invention capture and portfolio management.
With an impressive track-record of success in contentious proceedings, such as European Patent Office (EPO) oppositions and appeals, and supporting UK Court proceedings, we are well known for our insightful advice, freedom to operate analysis, and infringement and validity opinions. We also bring a wealth of experience handling highly valuable Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs), as well as advice on follow-on patent strategies to extend patent protections for high-value products.
