Delivering Added Value

Withers & Rogers has unrivalled experience and expertise that we believe is second to none. In addition to our practice groups, we have several individual specialist groups which enables us to pool our industry knowledge and bring added value to our clients.

We offer a comprehensive service that extends to both securing IP rights (such as patents, trade mark, and design registrations) and advising on their exploitation and enforcement. Alongside this, we provide proactive support functions that help our clients keep track of their IP, stay on top of its maintenance, and stay in control of costs.
