About Maschio & Soames

Maschio & Soames was founded to pursue a vision that combines traditional values in client service with a forward thinking approach to solving scientific, technical and legal problems.  We believe that good business is built on long-lasting relationships with our clients, based on respect and cooperation.  Our firm is driven by scientists and engineers with a passion for technical progress, rather than managers and accountants.  We are not hindered by bureaucracy, conflicting internal issues and high overheads that plague many other established patent and law firms.

Our ambition is to achieve our clients’ business goals rather than our own.  Unlike many other firms in todays increasingly aggressive market, we have understood that if we take care of our clients’ business goals, our own goals will look after themselves. 

Our vision extends internally as well as externally.  All of our staff share a commitment to client service in which our clients come first.  In our own office, we encourage an atmosphere of open discussion and mutual respect, which reflects on to our dealings with our clients and suppliers. 

Many of our attorneys have second degrees or PhDs, and have conducted research in academia or industry.  We have scientific consultants who provide confidential scientific consultancy services both to us and to our clients.  We strive to be on the forefront of scientific thinking – partly so that our clients do not need to spend time educating us, and partly because we enjoy it.  We love what we do, and we want you to feel the same.

Our scientific excellence is backed up by legal experience which speaks for itself.  Our attorneys have previously been Partners in top-ranking UK IP firms and all of our Partners have been Partners in an international law firm.  We have a very broad knowledge of intellectual property law, and we apply this knowledge in a practical way. 

The principle that unifies our scientific and legal approaches is that we enjoy intellectual challenges.  We believe that there is a right way to do things, and we aim to put at our clients’ disposal the intellectual ability and legal experience to meet the challenges we face together.  Our vision is to bring that to everything that we do.
