Mobilizing Minds in Merseyside

Mobilizing minds in Merseyside” was the title of Peter Raymond OBE’s masterly presentation to launch the Liverpool Inventors Club. And a very successful launch it was too with an audience of 24 drawn from the professions, universities, financial institutions as well as inventors. One of the things that holds back innovation, according to Peter, is the cost of professional services. He complained of the astronomical legal fees charged to one of his university spin-off companies in its first year of trading.

That was the perfect cue for me to introduce one of the aims of this and the other inventors’ clubs in the North. Every service provider that associates with a club will provide a free or discounted services. Members of all the clubs will be able to negotiate volume discounts for professional services, consultancy, insurance and the like. They will also provide opportunities for networking and brainstorming.

A steering committee consisting of representatives of the universities, local government and the professions as well as several local inventors was recruited. Meetings will take place regularly at the Central Library on the last Monday of every month.


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.
