Applying for Patents

I have just uploaded on the IP/IT-Update website a short article on applying for patents. This is not a “how to” guide. I am not a patent agent and always advise my clients to go to someone who is. Instead, it is an introduction to some of the many useful articles and publications from the Patent Office, European Patent Office, WIPO, British Library and other places. It also mentions the PATLIB libraries and the excellent work of Alison and Chris at the Manchester Central Library and Ged and Stef in Leeds in operating their clinics and inventors’ groups. Finally, I have mentioned the work HIP is doing in Huddersfield and Bradford and Ideas21 in Liverpool and Manchester as well as Blackburn.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
