Happy Client, General Counsel - E-cigarette Industry
We contacted Impetus in 2016 when we had an urgent need for IP administrative support after the sudden departure of our sole IP paralegal. Although the company is based in Switzerland we quickly put a solution in place so that Impetus were able to provide the support we needed form their offices in the UK. Since then we have been so pleased with the support that we have decided to continue working with Impetus and not employ a replacement IP paralegal.
Happy Client, Head of Patents - Pharmaceutical Industry
I have worked with Impetus since 2006 with various clients but in my current role the team were instrumental in assisting me setting up the formalities system. With their assistance, the portfolio has grown exponentially over the past 4 years. Always responsive, always willing to listen and always proactive, I quite simply couldn’t do my job without the team at Impetus!
Happy Client, Head of Intellectual Property - Internet Retail
I have worked with Impetus IP Limited for several years, and find them to be of the highest professional caliber in their provision of Intellectual Property support services. For each IP portfolio that they manage, the Impetus team weaves an in-depth working knowledge of a client’s business focus into an effective, individualized management strategy. Their value added approach to managing IP shines through in each matter they undertake, and I consider Impetus to be a highly organized, responsible and reliable service provider for the IP marketplace.
Happy Client, Patent Attorney - US Law Firm
Impetus were instrumental in migrating our IP portfolio when we were acquired and they continue to look after day to day IP matters, including docketing, file management, reports and liaison with outside agencies. Impetus assists me greatly in my role and supports the work of our R&D teams with rigor and very high professional standards.
