WP Thompson was established in 1873 by Mr. William Phillips Thompson. Since then, the firm has expanded both geographically and in terms of its areas of expertise to make it a truly twenty-first century practice offering a full range of Intellectual Property (IP) services not limited just to the field of patent, trade marks and designs filings.
Our attorneys have a wealth of experience in working with clients across all technical fields and in advising on a wide variety of IP matters. This includes in particular, securing the most appropriate, cost-effective and commercially valuable, protection for our clients’ intellectual investment and innovation.
The firm also has considerable expertise and a proven track record in contentious IP matters, especially in oppositions before the European Patent Office and, in the case of Trade Marks, oppositions at both the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) in Alicante, and the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO). Additionally, our professionals, especially those qualified as Patent Attorney Litigators, and/or practising with the a Design and Trade Mark Litigator’s Certificate, are accustomed to assisting clients in the preparation, initiating and management of litigation both in the UK and abroad.
