Boult Wade Tennant LLP

Boult Wade Tennant is a European IP firm with a global vision. With seven offices across the United Kingdom and Europe (London, Berlin, Madrid, Frankfurt, Cambridge, Reading and Oxford, with meeting facilities in Munich), we are considered to be a leading European IP firm by our global peers and clients. We have been providing high-quality IP services to our clients since 1894.

We have a longstanding reputation for providing first-class advice and support to our many and varied client base. We are ideally placed to deliver top-notch patent, trademark and design services to clients in the United Kingdom, Europe and beyond.

Our ability to service clients will not be affected by Brexit. European patents remain unaffected. Our offices in Madrid, Berlin and Frankfurt are staffed by teams of European-qualified attorneys and lawyers. This allows us to continue to offer EU trademark and design services post-Brexit.

Whether you need to protect your invention, brand or design, challenge the rights of others or maximise the commercial value of your intellectual property, we have the expertise to help you. We have been enabling our clients to achieve their commercial ambitions by offering high-quality, straightforward and practical IP advice for well over 100 years.


Our patents, trademarks and designs teams specialise in advising clients over the full lifecycle of brands, products, technologies or systems – from acquisition, strategy, exploitation and protection to commercial use, infringement and other contentious issues.

Our Patent and Design Group is experienced working with large corporates, from banks to pharmaceutical companies, smaller and medium-sized business, government bodies, academic institutions, research laboratories and individual inventors. We work closely with all these entities to help them achieve their commercial goals or strategies.

Our Trademark and Domain Name Group offers bold, creative and imaginative solutions to your brand-related IP issues. We cover everything from brand selection, filing and prosecution, and portfolio management, to oppositions, dispute avoidance and dispute resolution; from domain name recovery and anti-counterfeiting work to litigation support. No matter where you are in the world, we will work with you to add value to your IP assets and ensure you remain competitive.

Boult Wade Tennant can now also act as a single point of contact for clients that want a European trademark dispute resolution service, using our litigation services. Litigation services are offered through our German offices, which are home to experienced German trademark litigation lawyers. Our German lawyers have a track record in dealing with disputes before the German Patent and Trademark Office, the German national courts, and, at EU level, the General Court and the European Court of Justice.


We pride ourselves in the knowledge that when you work with an attorney from Boult Wade Tennant, you will receive high-level expertise and insightful advice from people who really will ensure they understand the unique challenges of your sector or industry. We combine our technical IP skills and judgement with the determination to find the best solution for you and follow things through to the end – no matter how demanding the timeframe or how complex the challenge. We believe that the ultimate source of value in our business is its people. We aim to employ only the brightest and continually develop our IP experts throughout their career so they always offer the best advice possible.
