Angel IP. Expertise

Angel IP are solicitors and European patent attorneys.

We provide expertise in international filing strategies, patent drafting and patent prosecution. As well as prosecuting patent applications for local and global protection, we have considerable experience in patent oppositions before the European Patent Office.

As solicitor-advocates, we offer a wealth of experience from major patent litigations before the UK courts, where we have advised both claimants and defendants.

Angel IP also advises clients on commercialising their IP, whether this requires the constructing of complex licensing arrangements or selling the IP. Our focus is always to identify and pursue options which maximise return on your innovation and investment.

Particularly useful for our clients, our expertise also draws on a long in-house period at the EPO by a practitioner as a European patent examiner, serving on both the Examining Division and the Opposition Division, and working in Brussels on the reform of the European patent system culminating subsequently in the UPC/unitary patent. We draft documents in English, but are also fluent in German and French.
