Slingsby Partners recommended in the IAM Patent 1000 2022

Slingsby Partners LLP is pleased to announce that we have been recommended in the IAM Patent 1000 2022 for UK patent prosecution. The IAM Patent 1000 2022 has the following to say about the firm:

“Slingsby wasn’t the first law firm I contacted – but it has been the last.” “Its attorneys are all very well versed in our technology and provide astute advice. We trust them to know what we want and to support us in achieving that.” Founded in 2013, the boutique is growing rapidly and has its sights set on greatness, increasing its headcount by 15%, even at the height of the pandemic. Heading up the technically capable squad – most of whom have hands-on industry experience – is namesake Philip Slingsby, who focuses on electronics, software and mechanical engineering and offers sage advice when it comes to patent procurement and contentious issues overseas, especially in the United States. He is joined by Paul RobertsStephen Turner and David King. Computer and software ace Roberts is the one to go to if you are looking to patent an invention in the complex area of machine learning, whereas Turner serves a sector-diverse clientele and acts as a Principal Examiner for the patent administrators’ course run by the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys. “Stephen’s work with us is excellent. He understands our product in depth in all areas of technology and provides us with strategic advice on drafting strategy.” King, meanwhile, provides solid advice to European companies embroiled in US patent litigation, as well as strong freedom-to-operate opinions. “David King listened carefully, immediately understood our vision and took it seriously. He has continually offered solutions when potential issues arise and has guided us wonderfully through the whole process. With the patience of a saint, he has answered countless questions and made the whole process thoroughly enjoyable.”
