Kilburn & Strode is a top-tier European intellectual property firm that protects some of the world's most innovative organisations.

For more than 100 years, it has been trusted to provide strategic IP advice and navigate the complex world of intellectual property for an impressive roster of clients of all sizes, including leading brands and some of the world's most impressive innovations.

Whether obtaining protection, clearing the path or defending key technologies, it offers a combination of experience, technical expertise and, most importantly, an approach that makes the firm a true extension of its clients' teams.

Kilburn & Strode offers technical, legal and commercial nous that is second to none and combines this with an attitude that makes working together easy. It sets itself apart from other firms working in the area by its focus on building deep relationships.

It is fiercely committed to diversity and social responsibility and created the Innovation for All Foundation, which donates one per cent of its annual profits to up-and-coming innovators. It was one of the first signatories of the IP Inclusive Charter, making a public commitment to supporting and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in the IP professions.

Kilburn & Strode is one of just a handful of leading IP firms in Europe ranked in the top tier for both trademark and patent prosecution in the Chambers and Partners, Legal 500, Managing IP, IAM Patent, and the World Trade Mark Review listings.
