Without patent protection, innovation
is simply an idea

Davies Collison Cave’s patent group has unrivalled experience protecting innovation in all technical areas—from life sciences and biotechnology to information technology and mechanical engineering.

The filing, grant and defence of patents is a technically complex process. The advice of a skilled and experienced patent attorney is critical navigating the maze of legal requirements and ensuring your invention is fully protected.

Our patent services: from filing to defence

The DCC difference: experience and skills

When engaging a patent attorney, two factors are critical: proven experience with a wide range of patent matters, and detailed technical skills in the technology area.
