United Kingdom

We help our clients to obtain patents in the United Kingdom, both via the European Patent Office and by filing directly with the UK Intellectual Property Office.

The UK Intellectual Property Office is an attractive option for applicants, including those based in Finland, due to low fees and high-quality examination, and the possibility of quickly obtaining protection in one of Europe’s most significant markets.

In addition to preparing patent applications for and filing patent applications with the UK Intellectual Property Office, we also help our clients with other UK-patent related matters that require local expertise, including:

  • Preparing infringement and validity opinions related to UK patents.
  • Due diligence and freedom to operate analyses for companies looking to enter the UK market.
  • Preparing and filing third party observations on competitors’ UK patent applications.
  • Advising on the application of UK patent law, including avoiding making unjustified threats.

Berggren’s activities before the UK Intellectual Property Office are managed by our own UK-qualified patent attorney, Michael Nielsen. Michael is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys, the professional association for patent attorneys in the UK, and is regulated by IPReg, the statutory regulator of UK patent attorneys.
