Birmingham is the most populous British city outside the capital London, with over 1,000,000 residents and is equally important in terms of innovation and economic contribution to the United Kingdom.
Birmingham grew to international fame in the late 18th century at the heart of the Midlands Enlightenment and subsequent Industrial Revolution. The scientists, engineers and industrialists of Birmingham achieved globally important developments in technology and economic organisation, producing a series of critical innovations, including steam engines and manufacturing processes that laid many of the foundations of modern industrial society.
The firm was established in Birmingham in 1884 by Henry Skerrett who set up on his own as a patent agent and consulting engineer. Wilson Gunn acquired the firm in 1998 and has continued to grow the client base and has helped to protect some of Birmingham’s most important intellectual property assets.
