When developing IP strategies for multinational companies, SMEs, universities and research institutions, HGF’s multidisciplinary teams work in close collaboration with clients to fully understand the commercial realities and goals of their businesses.

By gaining a true insight into an organisation’s unique pressures and timelines, whilst blending broad industry experience, our teams of attorneys are able to provide astute, commercially-relevant direction for developing an IP portfolio that fully underpins the business plan and that is appropriate for the industry in which it operates. 

Our industry-leading IP specialists and Europe’s top litigators work collaboratively as a single team. By combining extensive in-house services, a breadth of legal experience and technical understanding, we deliver dynamic, commercially-relevant IP strategies that perform at every stage of the lifecycle.
