WP Thompson was established in 1873 by Mr. William Phillips Thompson. The firm is a truly twenty-first century practice offering a full range of Intellectual Property (IP) services. These are not limited just to patent, trade mark and design filings.
Our attorneys have great experience across all technical fields and on a wide variety of IP matters. The advice given includes, in particular, how to secure the most appropriate, cost-effective and commercially valuable, protection for our clients' intellectual property.
The firm also has considerable expertise and experience in contentious IP matters. These include: oppositions before the European Patent Office; trade mark oppositions at the European Union Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) in Alicante; and trade mark oppositions in the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO). Additionally, our professionals, especially those holding Higher Courts Litigation Certificates, assist clients in the management and conduct of litigation both in the UK and abroad.
