HGF ranked in the Financial Times special report 2021

June 2021

HGF has been ranked in the Financial Times special report ‘Europe’s Leading Patent Law Firms’ published on the 17th June 2021.

More than 10,000 patent attorneys working in patent law firms or in the patent departments of companies, as well as clients, were directly invited to take part in the survey. Survey participants could recommend firms both in general and by specialities, categorised into six sectors. The sample was collected via research conducted by Statista on relevant company websites, in publications and from the EPI (the Institute of Professional Representatives Before the European Patent Office), the professional body representing European patent attorneys.

The firm is one of the leading firms of IP specialists in Europe, with 22 offices across Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK, and is internationally recognised by its peers across these core areas of technology.

The firm has a clear strategic growth plan under the leadership of Paul Sanderson, CEO. The firm has continued to expand across Europe in 2021 with the opening of our latest offices in Rennes, France.  Our continued expansion reflects our commitment to providing the highest quality service both now and in the future across Europe.

As a firm we are committed to building strong client relationships and delivering outstanding service from our offices across Europe. We continue to deepen our understanding of the client experience and provide tailor made solutions for our clients in Europe and around the world and we are delighted to be ranked and believe it is our integrated approach.
