My experience with Albright IP has been flawless from start to finish. I... have never filed a patent before so I was learning everything as I went along. They have been helpful in every way possible and gone the extra mile to ensure I was kept in the loop and happy as everything was going through each step of the way. I cannot express enough how pleased I am with their service. I had the pleasure of working with Will, Abigail, and Adrian. I would recommend Albright IP to anyone looking to file a patent more

Was a pleasure to work with Will and Melissa on a patent draft and filing.... Will took the time to understand both my software product and the commercial motivations behind the patent filing. They were extremely responsive to questions and clarifications throughout the process (availability isn't everything, but it certainly helps!).They were also very clear regarding fees, and set out a very helpful visual timeline and cost breakdown on the whole patent application process at the pre-sales stage. This emphasis on making sure I understood all aspects of the work, and having documentation to help with that, is something I didn't see with any of the other patent services I was talking to at the time. This clear communication continued throughout our interactions.Would recommend Albright IP to anyone looking to patent an invention. The patent they filed for me was for a software more

Need a Product Designer?

Helpful Tips

Do I have to identify the designer?
It is possible to waive the name of the designer when filing a European Community Design, but you should be sure that you have the rights to the design


Where patents and other intellectual property rights are concerned, a question we are often asked is: “If I’m copied, can I afford to protect my rights?”.

What happens if your product inadvertently infringes someone else’s patent or other rights?

The same also holds true for trade marks and brands. It is surprising how many people choose a great brand name for their company or product line, only to later find out it is a trade mark registered earlier by another company, or that their brand name is being copied.

Patent insurance and trade mark insurance, known collectively as IP insurance (or intellectual property insurance), will support you financially in these situations. It acts as a deterrent (because the other side will realise you have the financial backing to pursue an argument), and thus typically encourages a speedier settlement.

Albright IP has negotiated incomparable preferential rates for patent and trade mark insurance for our clients.

An outline of the insurance packages available is provided below, listing the amount covered and the territory it applies to. Downstream costs in any contentious matter should also be lower if we are handling your patent or trade mark case, since we will already be aware of the details of your invention or brand.

Packages available – Amount covered and territory:

  • £200,000 of legal costs covered for actions in the UK only
  • £250,000 of legal costs covered for actions in Europe only
  • £500,000 of legal costs covered for any action worldwide
  • £1,000,000 of legal costs covered for any action worldwide

The amount covered is any one claim in the aggregate, and is for pursuit (which is 50% of the above covered amount) and defence. The excess is £5000 for clients of Albright IP (normally £10,000), and £25,000 for any one claim in USA/Canada. The insured entity will also have a maximum turnover of £5 million. If above this, then a bespoke quote will be needed, but preferential rates will still apply.

Please contact us for the preferential premiums, if any of the above packages are of interest, or to discuss your situation further with one of our experienced attorneys.
