A wealth of experience working with UK and overseas corporate clients of all sizes, in all industry sectors


We understand the business drivers that make IP an important part of corporate strategy. We work closely with our corporate clients to help them exploit their IP rights to best commercial gain.

Mewburn Ellis is one of the top European IP firms. We file and prosecute patent, trade mark and design applications as well as handling all contentious and transactional IP matters. We are the number one choice for IP protection for UK and overseas corporate clients of all sizes, and we work across a wide range of industry sectors.

Commercially focused IP attorneys

Renowned for being easy to work with, we take a clear, straightforward approach that delivers results. We try to be as flexible as possible. And whether our attorneys are applying for a patent or trade mark registration on your behalf or our dispute resolution team is helping settle a dispute with a third party, your commercial activity will always be at the forefront of our minds. Your business goals and budgets are our priority.

Flexible working practices

We have a lot of experience working directly with in-house legal departments, directors, managers and inventors and we tailor our communication accordingly. We believe in being as flexible as possible to accommodate your working style.

We are happy to integrate our services into your business structure. Take advantage of our in-house assistance service to bring us on board to work as an integral part of your in-house IP or legal department.

IP Training and business advice

Integrate us into the heart of your IP strategy and enjoy how proactive we will be in looking after your IP rights. We can provide IP training at all levels within your corporate structure, and ensure everyone across the company understands the real value derived from exploiting your IP rights to the full.

All our attorneys are well versed in the government schemes focused on financial incentives for innovation. We can help you benefit from the latest R&D tax credits and innovation vouchers. If you have an established patent portfolio, we can advise you on how to reduce the amount of corporation tax you pay through the Patent Box.

IP in Corporate transactions

Finally, with our in-house legal services team and IP attorneys working together, we can assist in all aspects of IP in corporate transactions. We are well practised in carrying out due diligence, regularly advising vendors and investors on the IP rights involved in corporate deals such as mergers, acquisitions and IPOs. And we are used to appraising all IP aspects of contracts and licensing agreements, as well as other regulatory matters.
