Need a Product Designer?
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
When I first turned to Albright IP, I only had a fragment of an idea. I sat down with Adrian who listened and encouraged me to go further as he felt there was value to patenting the idea. He placed me under Will’s care, who not only understood very well what the patent was about, but also phrased it in a way which accurately reflected my thoughts. He also encouraged me to think of novel ways and ideas to implement in the patent draft. Also, when I needed to talk to someone on a short notice, and Will was not available, I was referred to Ms. Loo, who was kind, informative and helpful. I am very happy with the experience I had and I highly recommend Albright IP.
Adrian and his team have been excellent and very helpful. I would recommend them to other people who have an Idea and would want it to getRead more “BERNARD ENERIO”
Adrian is an expert Patent Attorney in his field and I received the highest calibre of his services. I live in East London, near London Docklands and have searched for so many patent organisations, at least 30 including abroad and in different continents. However, among them I became attracted to Adrian’s communications. I travelled to Adrian’s office and the distance was over 80 miles. The services and presentation that I received from Adrian was 100% satisfactory and always memorable.
Thank you for everything, especially your fantastic support and guidance throughout and for being so lovely, kind and patient even when i was a pain with my constant questions andRead more “JACQUELINE FLEMING”

Katie Oliver has been a great help with our Trade Mark applications both for the UK and Overseas. She has a detailed knowledge of the subject which is useful for the lay person and promptly responds to queries. I would thoroughly recommend Katie to anyone who is embarking on Trade Mark protection.

Adrian, Thank you very much for the great work that you did with the patent! Your input was the most important one that led the patent to grant. Your high professionalism, knowledge and expertise are highly regarded. It was my great honor to work with you. I am sure we will continue our relationship going as the patents will have to be renewed, however our major work have been completed. I will always remember my experience working with you as the most accomplishing one!

I wish to express my sincere thanks to Adrian Hocking, Partner at Albright IP Limited as well as his Personal Assistant, Ms. Lynne Horton. As an overseas client, I can truly say that both Adrian and Lynne were extremely supportive throughout my patent applications process. I particularly found Adrian to be diligent, tenacious, clear, concise, commercially aware, patient and extremely easy to communicate with. As a result of the support of Adrian and Lynne, I have successfully obtained two patents. I am truly grateful for all of their efforts and I fully intend using the services of Albright IP again within the not-so-distant future.
Thank you and to all the members of your team who were involved. You made what seems a very complicated process very easy forRead more “PETER”
Adrian picks up the concept idea and principles you describe extremely quickly for patent applications. He then writes the application and explains in plain English exactly what is and is not covered; being very commercially aware he offers invaluable advice for the application design [variations of and possible improvements] through to the enforcing of the patent. I have used Adrian for numerous patents and over many years, he is great to work with and has inexhaustible patience – a true wordsmith.

I am extremely relieved to have this idea protected and to now be able to stop all the cloak and dagger business and actually tell people about it. A very big thank you to all of you at Albright. I couldn’t be happier with the way you have helped me through this process and will tell anyone who will listen that yours is the firm for all things patents. Look forward to working with you again as this thing develops.

Adrian heads up the team that handles our international intellectual property portfolio. He is extremely knowledgeable and very good at explaining things in layman’s terms (essential for me!). Adrian has handled DLP and AKW’s portfolio of IP for many years and his knowledge of our portfolio and its history was vital as I took over from a departing member of staff. His advice is good and very valued and the level of attention we receive is exactly what we need – not too hands on but instantly there if we need something. Our IP portfolio is managed very well and we have a very good relationship with Adrian and his team. I cannot fault the service we receive.
Albright IP have been very supportive, made this process as simple as possible, and have given honest opinion on everyRead more “BOBBY RAI”
Just to say thanks for all the help with the trademark. I did the pitch and I am not allowed to advertise yet, so all hush, hush, but I got the money from the dragons, what a scary place. Thanks again. I am sure we will be using your services in the future.

I have worked alongside Adrian and his team for 4 years now and their professionalism has helped me obtain a successful patent. I haven’t found the whole process easy but they have always been available to stear me through all of the hurdles and I could not be more grateful to them. Brilliant team!!!
Let me start by WOW(!) and well done… the report looks brilliant, that’s exactly what’s needed to satisfy the UK IPO, but primarily what we describe as value for money for our Customers. The report is well written and the recommendations make perfect sense from the commercial point of view.
