Chapman IP

Company Profile

Chapman IP is a niche intellectual property practice, specialising in obtaining and advising on patents, trade marks, brand protection and designs. 

Our attorneys are experienced in managing IP rights for major UK and international companies, and start-up businesses alike, and advising on IP strategy, licensing and due diligence.  From day-to-day filing through to advising on IP strategy and due diligence, we offer the full range of patent, trade mark and design advisory and registration services.  We can advise on whether your chosen brand might infringe the rights of others and we can help choose your brand to maximise IP value to obtain the registered trade mark rights, UK, EU or globally, quickly and efficiently. 

Whether you have developed a new brand, need to enforce your trade mark rights in an existing product or service, or require maximum protection for the branding of a new product or service, you can be sure of talking to someone who will understand your commercial goals. 

Many of our clients require advice and support which extends beyond the core activities of filing and prosecuting patents, trade marks and designs.  Our attorneys have considerable experience of working in and with corporate IP departments, both in multinational companies and high-tech start-ups.  As a result, we recognise and understand the commercial realities of intellectual property.  We also have an experienced and flexible renewals team who can handle payment of renewal fees for your patents, trade mark registrations and registered designs around the world. 

Our service is personal and tailored to your individual requirements and we provide competitive and transparent costings for advising, obtaining, managing and maintaining your IP rights.


We represent you directly at the UK Intellectual Property Office and the European Union Trade Mark Office (EUIPO).  Because our trade mark attorneys advise on and protect trade marks every day, we can respond quickly and with sound commercial advice based on years of experience.
