Who we are


Concerto IP represents the patent, trade mark, design right and other intellectual property interests of clients from UK and elsewhere over a range of technologies and business sectors.

Our experience extends to jurisdictions across the globe; we act under UK and European law, multinational laws such as the European Patent Convention (EPC) and the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), as well as under foreign laws using the network of local partners we have established in most countries.

We’re a company, with a corporate culture and outlook. Malcolm Lawrence is CEO, Principle Attorney and Head of Legal Practice.

Concerto IP has a unique brand, and it’s supported by Core Values which you probably won’t find anywhere else.

What we do

We engage with clients as expert partners to:

  • Protect, defend, transact in and help manage innovation and Intellectual Property as a business asset
  • Help to identify and harvest IP in client organisations, perhaps creating a sizeable and valuable IP portfolio
  • Help to identify, and to manage or erase, third party IP risks which may threaten client business interests
