Research & Development

About

The geographical location of our offices means that we are ideally situated to work with some of the UK’s leading research and development organisations, across a wide range of technology-related projects. 

For many of our clients, whether they are commercial bodies or not-for-profit entities, R&D is often one of their most costly investments, but ultimately one that can bring significant benefits, in terms of creating IP portfolios, trade secrets and know-how, that will help them to achieve future revenue generation.

We advise on almost all areas of R&D projects, from the IP aspects of joint ventures and strategic alliances, to the contract terms for collaborative R&D agreements and complex funding arrangements with related R&D tax credits.

We understand the often complicated networks of relationships that sit behind most R&D projects, and our Technology team is experienced in helping you to deal with these relationships, to take steps to protect their investment, and to successfully exploit the project outcomes.
