Mathys & Squire works with a range of organisations – from start-ups and SMEs to public sector bodies, universities and global entities – covering the full spectrum of industries and work with some of the most established brands in each sector. The firm’s specialist trademark attorneys protect the rights of global brand owners in a diverse range of sectors, including automotive, consumer goods, sports, food and drink, clothing, pharmaceuticals and technology. Mathys & Squire’s team of experts share their clients’ ambition, passion and entrepreneurial spirit, going above and beyond what is expected when it comes to service delivery.
Mathys & Squire recognises that the effective management of trademark and design portfolios encompasses the delivery of a wide range of services, including:
- trademark portfolio management;
- trademark availability searches (including brand availability analysis for new products and services);
- the filing, prosecution and renewal of trademark applications (in the United Kingdom, the European Union and overseas);
- monitoring and watching services;
- oppositions, cancellation actions and contentious IP proceedings (including litigation);
- anti-counterfeiting and online brand protection and enforcement services;
- the preparation and recordal of trademark assignment documentation; and

Mathys & Squire has a number of rising stars within its trademark team, including Laura West, Harry Rowe and Daniel Ramos, who are all UK chartered and European trademark attorneys working with a range of clients across a broad range of sectors. Rebecca Tew, formerly of Marks & Clerk, also recently joined the firm to head up the Midlands office.
The firm’s trademark attorneys are heavily involved in clients’ commercial strategies, focusing on brand management and licensing, as well as protection. Following the acquisition of Coller IP (an IP strategy, management and valuation specialist), Mathys & Squire now boasts a complete and unparalleled IP service unlike many other IP firms. In offering clients services relating to the protection and defence of intellectual property, as well as its commercialisation and valuation, the critical importance of intellectual property as a business asset is recognised across the firm’s service areas and sector groups.

Further, the ISO 14001 accreditation focuses on environmental management issues and recognises the commitment to improving the firm’s environmental performance by using resources efficiently, reducing waste and reducing its carbon footprint.
Mathys & Squire is passionate about creating and delivering innovative, high-quality, client-focused services and building close and longstanding relationships with clients in order to establish defensive and offensive IP portfolios that generate commercial value. The firm’s experts are proactive when working with clients and valued for their integrity, honesty and collegiate approach.
