Intellectual Property Advice For Construction Sector
The construction sector is a significant contributor to the UK economy. In 2014 it contributed £103 billion to UK economic output - 6.5% of the total - and it employs in excess of 2.1 million people. The increasing demand on the sector to provide cost effective construction solutions, whilst minimising the environmental impact, has led to an increasing number of companies developing innovative products and processes.
Our attorneys have extensive experience of working with clients in the construction sector. We act for a number of companies, including multinational corporations as well as small niche enterprises. We have sought protection on behalf of our clients for a range of technologies, such as innovative building materials and ventilation systems. We have also advised clients on the protection of ‘green’ inventions designed to improve sustainability and reduce environmental impact. Our clients include market leaders in specialist building products and as such, our attorneys have a wealth of experience in seeking protection for technological developments within this sector.
In addition to patent protection, our attorneys can also advise companies on other issues in this sector including design matters, trade marks and licensing of patented technology.
