Venner Shipley

Firm Profile

Venner Shipley is a leading firm of trade mark attorneys with offices in London, Cambridge, Manchester, Guildford and Munich.

We advise a broad range of clients, from individuals and start-up companies to universities and major domestic and international companies.

We offer clear commercially focused advice to our clients. For us, it is not just about knowing the law - it is about understanding and connecting all of the dots to help our clients achieve their commercial goals.

Achieving trade mark protection, while fundamental, is just one aspect of our work - we also work with our clients to ensure that they can exploit their IP to achieve a competitive advantage.

We have grown at a phenomenal pace over the last decade but have held fast to our values. We believe that teamwork and an approach that is both flexible and ingenious will bring the right commercial rewards to our clients - making their IP count.
