Our philosophy says that there is more to fulfilling our clients' needs than the advice that they receive directly from us. It is important to us to help educate clients and to help them to stay abreast of developments in intellectual property. For this reason we offer 'Library Resources' which includes tools such as patent and trade mark 'Q&A', flow charts which outline patent processes and a variety of fact sheets.
