Specialist Intellectual Property Firm Wynne-Jones Opens London Office

Posted on

This launch comes as the firm has achieved double digit growth for the third year running.

The continued popularity of entrepreneurial business trends such as crowd-funding has led to a surge in interest in brand and invention protection generally and increased client opportunities for Wynne-Jones IP.

The new London office will also accommodate the UK Head Office of Aipex BV, the pan-European IP law firm that Wynne-Jones IP owns in conjunction with a small number of other prominent European IP firms.

The office will be headed up by Partner Victor Caddy, who has more than twenty years’ experience as a Trade Mark and Design Attorney and Litigator.

Commenting on the opening of the London office, Caddy said: “A year ago, we set out to launch our first London office within four years and have achieved this in less than twelve months.

“This is thanks to the high quality of the team we have managing our business planning, and the dedication and enthusiasm of all our staff.

“Aipex is a ready-made solution to intellectual property challenges of Brexit, and, for Aipex to open a London Head Office at this time is a no-brainer”.

The program, which will be piloted by Italy, US, UK, Spain, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, and Canada, could eventually be offered by all 47 countries participating in the Forum on Tax Administration, namely, all OECD and G20 countries plus a few others.”
