Hindles has been identified as a leading patent firm in the 2018 edition of IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals, published in June 2018.
The publication is based on recent research, interviews and feedback from peers and clients. We are particularly pleased that the guide recognises some of the characteristics which we believe are responsible for our organic growth. It refers to the qualities of our attorneys (‘making mouths water with the sophistication and seamlessness of their counsel’, and described as ‘very impressive scientifically minded individuals’), the clarity of our communication of complex legal concepts, and the high level of client service.
Alistair Hindle and Robert Gregory are also specifically recommended as leading individuals for patent prosecution. The guide recognises Alistair’s rigorous attention to client care, and his ‘affinity for working with start-ups that share his enterprising spirit and want to become world beaters’. Rob’s expertise in chemistry is mentioned, and he is recommended for providing ‘practical advice tailored to clients’ needs and objectives’ and being ‘extremely well-versed in European patent law’.
