Computing

Whilst the server, CPU and non-volatile memory markets continue to thrive with the ongoing growth of internet and cloud computing companies, the use of AI in the processing of data is increasing across a multitude of industries, such as healthcare, automotive, banking, retail and social media.

This is heavily influencing the evolution in processing technology and bringing fresh challenges to traditional companies as existing processing technology is evolved for new concepts.

HGF’s 40+ strong specialist team, one of the largest of its type in Europe, has a wealth of hands-on experience in the processor and memory sector, along with deep expertise in borderline patentable subject matter, with a successful track record in circumventing the patentability exclusion for certain categories of computer implemented inventions.

Many of the attorneys have physics and electrical engineering PhDs and are highly experienced in the drafting of processor architectures, power management, memory and software applications, together with prosecution and strategic advice for, multinational technology companies and universities. This is all backed up by our experience in commercialisation in this industry through agreements such as for software development, IP licensing, SaaS and escrow.
