Physics and Engineering IP

Physics and Engineering IP

We have attorneys with strong technical backgrounds in physics and engineering disciplines and we work regularly with complex inventions spanning physics, engineering, electronics, IT and medical devices. Many of the inventions we work with are multidisciplinary.

Examples of technical fields which we have worked in recently are:

  • Medical devices (mechanical, electronic, imaging, sensing, etc.), both human and veterinary
  • Renewable power generation, particularly wave energy and wind turbine generators
  • Energy storage
  • Sensors, such gas sensors, optical sensors, electrochemical sensors, surface acoustic wave sensors
  • Actuators, e.g. robotics, piezoelectric actuators
  • Acoustic attenuators
  • Hydraulics, pumps, motors, engines, transmissions
  • Semiconductor processing, single photon detectors, MEMS devices, switches, etc.
  • Digital signal processing, bioinformatics, control algorithms, analogue, digital and mixed signal electronics, user interfaces, text mining, e-commerce, data aggregation, image and video processing
  • Mobile telecommunications, mobile device positioning technologies
  • Building and central heating technology, water purification and recycling
  • Clothing, sports equipment, animal husbandry
  • General mechanical engineering and electrical inventions
