We advise on patent searching, corporate IP management and due diligence. Our focus is the best possible protection for your intellectual property and creating maximum value from it.

Our client base spans from fast-growing SMEs to university spin-out companies to individual entrepreneurs and inventors. They operate in fields as diverse as electro-optical devices, energy, semiconductors, education, business software and mechanical products.

Our philosophy is that the value of a patent arises from the commercial advantage it creates for your business. Our Lean Patent process reduces wasted time and effort, so saves you money. LeanIP maintains a transparent, effective and professional approach to the practice of quality patents. 

Our Practice

We handle all aspects of patent law, nationally and internationally, from drafting and filing, through prosecution of applications to granted patents and beyond.

We conduct IP audit assessments to help you identify and evaluate the current IP status of your company; untangle complex issues of IP ownership; and make strategic decisions on potential future IP. The ultimate goal of our IP Audit service is to help you develop a well-crafted IP portfolio that supports your long-term business plan and strengthens your position in a global and competitive market.

We are in the top 3 firms in the UK in terms of the number of IP Audits reported by the UK Intellectual Property Office in 2017.

We also provide advice on IP protection of design rights, copyright and trade marks.
