Telecommunications

New technology emerges thick-and-fast, and rapidly evolving telecommunications standards, such as 5G, pose ongoing challenges.

Forward-looking drafting with fast turnaround in highly specialised areas is required to enable cutting-edge companies to protect their current products and future developments.

HGF’s telecoms and mobile devices team of over 40 attorneys, with a wealth of academic and in-house experience, has the expertise to nimbly and creatively navigate through the European patent system. Our team is currently obtaining granted European patents for our clients in this sector at a rate of more than 700 per year enabling clients to protect their R&D efforts and build valuable portfolios. This covers all aspects of technology, from features and operation of the mobile devices themselves, to telecommunications infrastructure, including associated software. What’s more, HGF draws on its extensive experience to obtain European protection for developments often on the borderline of patentability, such as those associated with GUIs.
