Patents contain a wealth of information about the technical and business interests of organisation particularly their trends and innovations. We have developed methods to identify, analyse, assimilate and present patent information in a concise and valuable form to suit clients's needs. We can provide surveys of 'patent landscapes', to enable identification of competitor interests, strengths, weaknesses and threats as well as identifying opportunities, such as potential partners of licensees. 

Bawden and Associates has extensive links with like-minded IP attorneys globally to ensure the best interests of our clients are served wherever they have patent, design and trade mark interests. Our professional activities include all aspects of obtaining and defending IP rights around the world. This forms the core of our business and involves identifying opportunities for our clients to secure valuable protection, preparation of patent applications and applications for trade mark and design registration, and ensuring their successful progress through the patent offices and defence against third party attack.

Opinion and advisory work, including identifying and managing competitor threats, also forms a mainstay of our practice. We regularly appear before the Opposition Divisions and Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office (EPO) both defending and attacking patents. We have conducted litigation in Europe, the United States, Japan, Korea, India, Australia and Canada. We are highly experienced in coordinating pan- European and global litigation and the inter-relation between EPO opposition and national litigation.
