Why us?


Act Local, Think Global

We help you convert your ideas and inventions into strong defensible patents and designs. As we have deep knowledge and expertise of patent law in  Singapore and other major jurisdictions such as the United States, Europe and China, we draft patent applications that will comply with the patent offices of these countries. We also assist you to obtain intellectual property rights in other countries through our strong and reliable network of international associates. 


Think Different

We will work closely with you to understand your business strategies and competitive advantages to provide practical, strategic, and cost-effective advice that will help you achieve your IP goals. We work with startups, small and medium-sized companies and multi-national corporations to navigate the dynamic and challenging global patent landscape. 

Create & Extract value

We help you leverage on your IP assets by providing actionable intelligence that will extract optimal value from your IP assets. We do this by helping you develop innovation management and portfolio management strategies that will in turn optimise value from your intellectual property assets.


Fixed Fees first

Your legal bills shouldn't be a surprise. We understand that cost certainty is essential for growing companies. When you work with us, you know how much you're paying upfront. We  use transparent and fixed fees because we believe this creates a better working relationship for both us. 

"Men are just beginning to propose questions and find answers, and we may be sure that no matter what question we ask, so long as it is not against the laws of nature, a solution can be found. "
