All-round expertise

Our attorneys have many years' experience of advising diverse businesses on their intellectual property, combining deep technical expertise with commercial awareness. All have technical or scientific backgrounds and qualifications, often having worked in-house for science and engineering companies in the UK and overseas - meaning we speak the same language as our clients. This hands-on industry experience and breadth of knowledge enables us not just to understand the potential in complex ideas and technologies but to offer real-world, practical guidance on the best way of realising their value.

About us 1

A personalised approach

Our focus is on delivering the right intellectual property strategy for each of our clients - whatever their needs and ambitions may be. We don't just offer dry, reactive legal advice that focuses on box-ticking. Our team takes the time to understand your objectives, offering advice that is tailored to your requirements, and adapting that advice as your business and marketplace evolve.

Joining Us

We pride ourselves on our firm's welcoming culture and supportive working environment, and we are always on the look-out for talented people to join our growing team.


Beyond their technical qualifications, our attorneys bring an intellectual curiosity and an entrepreneurial approach that equips them to advise clients in some of the world’s most technical and fast-changing industries. If you have these qualities, along with a stubborn commitment to doing a great job for your clients, we’d love to talk to you.

Paralegal staff

Our paralegal team is made up of people who share a fascination with IP and are keen to build their knowledge of patent law and procedures. It’s a collaborative environment, so you’ll need to be a team player, and the highly technical nature of work means that attention to detail, a highly organised approach and good communication skills are also key.

Slingsby Partners is a prosecution boutique whose sole focus is on patents. Superb at drafting bespoke applications to fit any engineering, electronic or physical sciences invention, it eschews a ‘cookie-cutter’ approach in favour of targeted, commercially sensitive advice. As one client says: “The firm’s technical understanding is extremely high, and it is extremely efficient – the best patent attorney firm I have worked with in my career."
