Albright IP has expanded its business with the purchase of Bournemouth-based IP company Atkinson Wheller following the retirement of founder Michael Wheller.
“We were approached by Michael who was looking for an established, reputable company that could take over his business,” said Robert Games, Albright IP, Managing Director. “We saw this as a great opportunity to expand our own customer base and we’re delighted to welcome these new clients into our fold.
“We’re looking forward to getting to know our new clients, and the wider Bournemouth business community. The town has been listed as a hotspot for business innovation, so we are sure there will be potential to attract new customers who would benefit from our expertise across patent law, trademark protection, design and copyright.”
The purchase means that clients of Atkinson Wheller will now have access to a greater pool of specialist IP experts, with sector expertise across engineering, physical and chemical sciences, electronics, software and product development to name but a few.
Robert added. “The purchase of Atkinson Wheller will enable us to expand our geographical footprint in the southwest and fits well with our plans to continue the strong business growth we’ve seen over the past fifteen years.”
Albright IP’s Bournemouth office is situated at the Aviation Business Park at Bournemouth International Airport.
