Bird & Bird is a leading international law firm that works with clients across a broad range of industry sectors.
Over the last century we’ve been lucky enough to have played a part in protecting some of the world’s most ground-breaking inventions, technological developments, discoveries & creations, in addition to supporting a wide range of high-profile brands. We are one of the most ambitious, energetic, dedicated groups of intellectual property professionals you’re likely to meet.
We have one of the largest pan-European IP teams of any international law firm, and additionally provide full coverage in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, with a representative office in the US. In total, across our 29 offices, we have more than 450 lawyers dedicated to IP, with over 80 of those based in the United Kingdom, and 130 in Germany.
We’re proud of how well we work as a team and the sheer breadth of expertise held across our network, which positively impacts the way we deliver services to our clients and in turn our reputation as a Band 1 law firm for intellectual property in numerous directories, including Chambers-Global (being one of only three firms that hold this prestigious position).
We provide a team rich in sector experience, combined with strong technical qualifications and are particularly commended for our experience in devising and coordinating litigation and dispute resolution strategy across multiple jurisdictions.
We firmly believe in innovating with our clients, we listen to their issues and work together to provide collaborative solutions. Over recent years we have developed products focused on supporting and complementing our legal services, including our patent intelligence offering, PATTERN, which combines our extensive patent analytics expertise with a powerful proprietary software tool.
Covering the full scope of IP law we will have you covered across the core areas of protection, enforcement, strategic management, valuation and monetisation of IP portfolios.
