Stronachs Logo

Stronachs’ work in the full range of industry sectors, across oil and gas, on and offshore renewable energy, in engineering and manufacturing, plays a key role in our ability to provide vital expertise to the technology sector.

We also act for technology companies in other key sectors to the local and national economies including life sciences, food and drink production and high-end utility appliances.

Our teams provide a range of vital support services including funding, contract negotiation and intellectual property protection, trademark applications and brand development.

They offer companies involved in technology research and development and manufacturing valuable assurance as they design, build, sell and licence their products in the open market.

Our specialist oil and gas, renewables, corporate, dispute resolution and banking and finance teams act for technology developers, manufacturers and suppliers, as well as private equity and other funding streams as they work to take their ideas out of the laboratory.

Securing funding and putting in place a support structure for developers and investors facilitates growth and our banking and finance and corporate specialists have significant experience of taking technology developers from concept to full scale manufacturing or company sale.

With a fully international network at their disposal, providing support across the Americas, Europe, Africa and south east Asia, Stronachs’ teams are able to handle legal issues on patents and patent applications, copyright and confidentiality matters, trademark applications, restrictive covenants, consultancy agreements, joint projects in industry and all aspects of IP protection.

Protecting intellectual property against infringement is a key consideration and our team is able to provide the full range of support to developers and licence-holders on acquiring ownership of intellectual property and what to do when their intellectual property is being infringed by others.
