A manufacturer of self-balancing powered unicycles

When the co-founder of Russia’s largest mobile phone retailer decided he wanted patent protection for his new business venture - self-balancing powered unicycles – one of our existing clients recommended us.  

The reason they were happy to make that recommendation was they knew we would deliver against his friend’s critical success factors, speed of response and an all-inclusive service. 

We met at very short notice and were able to demonstrate:

  • The unparalleled level of dedication we afford all of our clients
  • The comprehensive range of patent services we offer
  • The quality of our work  

As a result, we were selected over all of the other patent firms the client was talking to.  

Although the concept behind the unicycles was straightforward, the main challenge was going to be to draft and prosecute the client’s patent applications within extremely short timescales; as an example some new patents had to be prepared and filed within 48 hours of receiving the initial disclosure. 

While unicycles obviously aren’t a mainstay of our practice, this example shows we always put our clients’ needs first whether those clients are an instantly recognisable multinational or a new business venture.  We are ready to drop everything to deliver against any deadline and deliver without ever compromising the quality of our work.
