Maucher Jenkins



Maucher Jenkins is a firm of patent and trade mark attorneys and certified patent, trade mark and design litigators.  The firm was founded in London in 1937 and has built up one of the largest and most successful intellectual property practices in the United Kingdom and has offices in London, Farnham, Beijing, Freiburg, Munich and Basel.  

We believe that the success of our firm is based on our unique and diversified mix of professional experience gained both within industry and private practice. We employ attorneys from all commercial areas and it is their specialised knowledge that allows us to continue our tradition of service to our clients. Many of our professionals are multi-lingual, a skill which our clients value highly.

From innovative startups to some of the world’s largest companies, we offer professional advice on all aspects of intellectual property and can supervise both offensive and defensive litigation for clients worldwide.

Here at Maucher Jenkins, we know that trade marks and brands define your corporate image and, as the principal means of product recognition, add a tangible value to your business. Trade marks facilitate repeat purchases by satisfied customers.  They allow advertisers to convey complex messages with a single word, phrase or logo, and, if wisely chosen, properly protected and carefully used,  they can become an asset of huge importance, ensuring a significant return on the original marketing and advertising investment. 


Maucher Jenkins’ trade mark department specialises in the protection, exploitation and enforcement of trade mark rights.  Our trade mark professionals are acknowledged experts in offering sound advice and imaginative solutions to complex legal and commercial problems. They also have considerable experience in contentious matters, particularly before the UK and Community Trade Mark Offices. 

Our team can guide you through the process of protecting your trade mark, including clearance searching and the protection of your new brand around the world. We have a proven track record in advising clients in all areas of trade mark law and practice and are particularly well known for our ability to protect unusual marks such as colours, shapes and sounds.

We advise on cost-effective trade mark and brand portfolio management, as well as appropriate use of trade marks and brands in marketing and advertising materials. We also advise on corporate transactions involving trade marks and brands, including transfers, licences, mergers and acquisitions. We work with clients to identify and challenge conflicting marks and help protect trade marks and brands from competitor encroachment. 

Our overseas filing programmes have covered almost every country in the world and our international client base has enabled us to build up our practice in European Trade Marks at the EU Trade Marks Office (EUIPO) in Alicante.  Since the EUIPO opened in 1996, we have become one of the most prolific filers of EU TM Applications and we therefore have considerable expertise in all aspects of EU TM practice.

Maucher Jenkins’ team of trade mark experts is supported by a records team that maintains a comprehensive in-house trade mark management system for managing all of our cases. This also enables us to provide management reports to clients which are tailored to their requirements. 

Our aim is to combine the best aspects of private and corporate trade mark practice. We seek to act in the manner of in house professionals but with the independence of out of house advisors.​
