Artificial Intelligence technologies are becoming increasingly pervasive in their applications, creating a disruptive influence in almost all industries, from automotive and consumer electronics, to fintech, medical and retail.
The mass availability of large quantities of data, computing power and increasingly refined machine learning techniques are unleashing a wave of innovation across an unlimited scope of applications, with automation and optimised processes, in particular, changing the face of business, technology and consumer lifestyles.

AI is unlocking economic opportunities, boosting productivity and driving innovation. However, in this fast-evolving technical field, the law is challenged with significant regulatory, liability, privacy and ethical issues – and IP is no exception.

Providing a full service to protect AI inventions, including advising on what to patent and what to maintain as a trade secret, the team works closely with experts across all sectors of our business, from life sciences to retail, to deliver industry-leading, multidisciplinary IP expertise.
