Developments in electronics underpin the modern economy and are essential to drive growth and innovation. The Information Age demands greater bandwidth, more processing power and lower latency and delivering this draws on skillsets not just from electrical engineering but from a number of other complimentary disciplines.

Innovations in this field drive patent filings, with a marked increase in the number of electronics related filings in recent years. Electronics patents are already widely litigated and this growth in filings will likely drive further litigation in what is a highly competitive sector.

Our team comprises electronic engineers, computer scientists, physicists and chemists who have a strong track record of IP litigation experience in the electronics field, from semiconductor optimisations to motor designs for wind turbines to user interface innovations on touch screen devices.
