Hindles has again been identified as a leading patent firm, in the 2019 edition of the directory IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals.
The directory highlights the firm’s commitment to combining meticulous quality with an unwavering commercial focus, and comments that Alistair “ably walks such a line”, has “established a track record of getting the balance right between breadth of claim and limitation and navigating prior art”, and “is able to skilfully manage a complex roster of clients and applications”.
Robert Gregory’s experience in handling UK and European patent applications, and in defending them robustly when the need arises, is also noted. The directory is based on recent research, interviews and feedback from peers and clients, and the comments included: “There are not enough EPO practitioners like Robert, who is both an expert in the law and a highly skilled strategist. I rely on him to prosecute my toughest and most problematic cases.”
