Why Angel IP?

Why Angel IP?

Angel IP is a boutique legal practice dedicated to intellectual property, representing a combination of technical-legal experience with commercial focus. Our skills aggregate our legal, technical and commercial background.

With highly experienced IP practitioners, and expertise ranging from patent and IP prosecution, to litigation, licensing and contractual arrangements, Angel IP offers bespoke, cost effective solutions for your IP needs, whatever the technology and in all industry sectors. We are experts in identifying and extracting the core commercial value in your innovation: our market-focused strategies are designed to maximise the value in your IP asset.

We work in all technologies.

The value in your IP asset is a theme common to all our activities and shapes not only our drafting, prosecuting, defending and opposing patents before UK and European patent authorities. We are experienced patent litigators, working for both defendants and claimants in disputes before the UK Patents Court, IP Enterprise Court and the European Patent Office, as well as arbitration before the International Chamber of Commerce. Our practitioners have strong expertise in patents in mobile telephony/telecommunications, including Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) and FRAND licensing, and have developed specialist tools for the analysis of major SEP portfolios and have conducted long-term contentious negotiations for our clients.

Among your business assets your IP is likely to rank highly, if not at the top. You need to protect it and put it to work in a way that best serves your business objectives. You also need to ensure that you are avoiding third party rights. Managing your IP and having a clear strategy, by which your innovation is transformed into commercial return has never been more crucial.
