Established over 130 years ago, Phillips & Leigh has been offering a complete IP service to clients and associates across the globe.
At Phillips and Leigh, we pride ourselves on working closely with our clients and associates to get the fullest understanding of their situation and matching both short- and long-term business strategies with the best routes forward to obtain the required outcomes for clients.
Range of client services
Phillips & Leigh serve a wide range of clients ranging from large multinational corporations to SMEs and single inventors. For some of our clients, there is a high level of client contact with the emphasis of tailoring our service to meet their individual needs. Our patent attorneys and support staff have backgrounds and experience in a wide range of technical disciplines. At present, we are composed of seven attorneys, four partners and three associates.
Our firm offers advice to clients in all areas of technology pertaining to patents, trade marks, designs, IP due diligence, domain name registrations, defence and enforcement of IP rights and IP portfolio management and filing strategies.
Phillips & Leigh traditionally seek graduate entrants who have not previously worked in the IP industry and train them to a high standard. Whilst we are happy to receive applications from candidates from all technical disciplines we are particularly interested in receiving applications from graduate engineers or physicists with expertise in computer science or IT.
Professional development and training
Phillips & Leigh personnel have acted as examiners for the UK examinations and the European Qualifying Examination, and two have sat on the UK Joint Examination Board. This allows us to give well focussed training tailored to the requirements of the candidate and the examinations.
We also encourage all staff to attend external courses to gain valuable skills from other experts in the profession.
