Years of experience


About their firm

Wynne-Jones are a full service Intellectual Property (IP) firm and have been helping clients to protect their IP assets for over 50 years. They are one of the fastest growing IP firms in the UK. All law firms will tell you that they put the client at the heart of what they do but the client does not always see this in practice. For three years, Wynne-Jones have run key account management and client feedback processes, working with a set of client care standards. All clients have access, at any time they wish, to their Client Relationship Director. Wynne-Jones IP is also a major shareholder in AIPEX BV, a pan-European IP law firm, and therefore has a great network of lawyers to call on across all European jurisdictions.
