Whites IP Ltd acts for clients before Patent Offices, Trade Mark Offices and Intellectual Property (IP) Offices in the UK, Europe and internationally to protect  inventions. trade marks, designs and other forms of IP. We can also identify and review published IP rights held by competitors so as to try to reduce the risk of infringing any validrights held by them. This is sometimes known as a "freedom to operate" (FTO) analysis. 


We advise on many other IP matters, including infringement and validity analysis, providing opinions, assisting with licensing and assignment of IP, filing oppositions and appeals, managing and improving IP portfolios, etc. 

Our work is undertaken by our Managing Director, Martin White. Martin has over 30 years of experience in advising on IP and has obtained many  patents, designs and trade marks for clients.  He has worked both in industrial patent departments and in private practice and has been awarded the Strode Prize for the highest mark in the UK patent practice examination. Martin provides regular talks and seminars on IP matters.


We act for a wide range of clients, from individuals to large companies and can budget accordingly. Examples of clients  are provided on the "Clients" page.
