Why Use an IR Global IP Member?

Built from 1000+ members around the world, we are a true Global IP Network of Intellectual Property experts. The group truly offers unrivaled sector expertise and knowledge, so whether your focus is in Biotechnology, Computers, Electronics or Pharmaceuticals, we have leading Intellectual Property experts who not only understand the specifics of the IP practice area but the field in which you operate.

Furthermore, the group stands apart because of the close personal relationships in the group. In contrast, to the traditional international law firm model in which the local adviser has an obligation to refer your case to an employee in another office around the word, IR members have complete autonomy to introduce you to the individual they feel can best assist you.

When considering these friendships have been forged over many years at regular groups events, you can therefore be assured that the utmost care and attention is given. For these reasons, the IR Cross Border IP Group is fast becoming the ‘go to’ global alternative for international businesses. Get in touch and see how we can help you!
