These industries are characterised by the interaction of highly engineered products with the real world, resulting in inventions that span mechanical engineering, aerodynamics and materials science. Our attorneys have worked at the cutting edge of this sector for many years and are quick to seize the complex interplays between different technical fields that underpin our clients' innovations.
Our team has considerable experience of drafting, prosecuting and advising on patents and designs in the mechanical sector. Our work in this sector is varied: a reflection of the breadth of mechanical engineering itself. Recent instructions include advice on patent protection for robotic motion and control systems, motion simulators, innovative eco heating systems and linear power generators.
We also regularly advise on infringement risks in the automotive/aerospace field. Recent work has included advising on the development and launch of an advanced off-road vehicle for a major defence manufacturer and patent filings and freedom-to-operate advice on a range of supercars.
