Our sector expertise

Our roll call of clients includes some of the most successful high-tech businesses, from start-ups to household names. All our attorneys have degrees or higher qualifications in sciences of engineering; and all have many years of experience advising clients in their specialist sectors, often combined with experience working in industry. Much of the work we handle is technically very complex. We quickly gain an in-depth understanding of our clients' technology, and we give advice that is tailored to their particular needs, set in the wider context of the issues faced by businesses in their sector.


Our Approach

Our attorneys have a long track record of working alongside remarkable businesses to help them identify, protect and manage their intellectual property. Whether running a brainstorming session to capture the innovations in a new project or supporting a client through a dispute with a competitor, our goal is to make intellectual property work for our clients. We are particularly proud that the great majority of our instructions come through recommendations from existing clients.

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."
