Forresters: Protecting innovation and securing business success

As automation continues to change the world, companies are being ranked according to their level of innovation – and each new idea puts them a step ahead of their competitors.

By protecting the design, development and production of technology with a patent, companies not only see huge commercial benefit, but they give their customers a greater level of reassurance that their investment is secure.

Forresters is a leading intellectual property firm that patents technologies from a variety of industries. With its ethos of always using plain jargon-free language it’s not surprising that Forresters was recognised as one of Europe’s Leading Patent Law Firms for 2020 in the prestigious Financial Times listing.

Emma Johnson, a partner at Forresters and a specialist UK and European patent and trade mark attorney, said: “Without intellectual property rights in place, businesses leave themselves open to rivals being able to replicate and sell the products or services at a lower price, without incurring any research or development costs.

“It’s not just products that can be protected with patents, but also processes and even manufacturing methods. Ensuring that they have the correct protection in place can be critical for a business and mean the difference between success and failure.”

Forresters doesn’t just secure patents in the UK and Europe, but across the world. At the start of 2021 the company decided to capitalise on its global reach with a new website address –

This new domain not only reflects the firm’s international outlook, but also shows how they have smoothly transitioned through any Brexit changes and will continue to represent clients before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

Forresters has offices in Birmingham, Liverpool, London, Munich and Southampton and they recently moved to one of London’s most iconic buildings – The Gherkin. The move is part of Forresters’ commitment to growth and sustainability, allowing it to provide an exceptional service to clients while building on its eco-conscious principles.

The Gherkin’s impressive energy-saving methods allow it to use around half the power that a similar tower would usually consume, making it an excellent choice for companies focussed on sustainability. Emma added: “The service we provide to our clients will continue to be seamless as we ensure they have the correct IP protection in place for a post-Brexit market.”
