Gateway to Europe
OUR LONG STANDING PEDIGREE & OUR SPECIALIST US SERVICE
Based in Dublin, Ireland, Tomkins has been acting for US clients for over 80 years. With over 70% of our business transacted with US clients, we can safely say that we are an established and experienced leader in understanding the needs of our US clients – an understanding built on the deep relationship between the US and Ireland. Our US-based clients range from small entrepreneurial businesses with future international applications for their patents or trademarks, to mid-size growing businesses and multinationals.
Our Intellectual Property expertise is far-reaching; we are experienced with all the intangible assets, including patents and know-how for innovative products and processes, trademarks and brands, designs and copyrights, and even knowledge of entire business models for companies active in these areas. We help our clients generate value and wealth from their intangible assets, and we also help them organise their businesses around those assets.
Familiarity with US practice
Based on our rich experience and accumulated knowledge of US companies’ needs in Europe, we leverage our skills and experience into a unique offering that guarantees Tomkins’ clients a reliable, high-level advisory service, which goes above and beyond the basic filing/administration of patent or trademark applications.
Ireland is the only English speaking country in the Euro zone, which gives you a strategic advantage through using our IP management services, and is an hour closer to the US than mainland Europe. When you deal with Tomkins, you can rest assured that the nuances of your business won’t get lost in translation.
Ireland is a great location for locating an Intellectual Property/technology-based business so why not take the first step of managing your European IP portfolio from Ireland using Tomkins. We serve as a one-stop European Hub for global (large and small) clients seeking to expand their technology or brand based businesses into Europe.
Full in-house brand, science and technology teams available
With over 50 in-house multi-disciplined and dedicated staff, Tomkins is a full service IP firm that consistently delivers high calibre service and advice. Our expertise encompasses ICT, Engineering, Life Sciences, MedTech, Pharma, Chemistry and Brand/Trademark protection. Thanks to our collective skills and experience, we are able to consistently craft tailored business solutions.
Bridging the divide
Tomkins Attorneys travel regularly to the US on business. We always take the time during these trips to meet with our US Associates, as it allows us to identify ways in which we can tailor our services to best suit their working style. We also use this opportunity to update our Associates on any issues of European law which may be relevant to them.
