Slingsby Partners LLP


Our software specialists have a wealth of experience in this sector gained from advising IT companies active across a broad range of areas including embedded systems, graphics processing and FPGAs as well as internet-based technologies such as e-commerce, cloud computing and big data analysis.

The laws governing patent protection for software are complex and differ substantially worldwide. With our experience of successfully prosecuting many patent applications in this field we are able to analyse your development work and quickly advise on the prospects for patent protection in all the key jurisdictions.

Projects our attorneys have advised on include:

  • providing IP support to a project developing billing software for a phone network provider
  • patent protection for a range of big data analysis systems
  • due diligence in relation to the acquisition of a company providing geophysical data analysis
  • advising on the transition from an Open Source licensing model to a proprietary licensing model
