In the recently launched Patent 1000 IAM 2022 edition, Dehns was named as a “potent player in the European patent prosecution space” and was highlighted as being “particularly good at EPO oppositions” – Dehns has filed more patents in each of the last five years, and is currently handling more oppositions, than any other UK firm.

Dehns Partner, and senior member of the Dehns Litigation Group, Rob Jackson was singled out as being a “star of the engineering group”, while “Life science concerns have molecular biologist (and Dehns Partner) Philip Webber on speed dial: he plays a crucial role in shaping the IP strategies of pharmaceutical and biotechnology start-ups, SMEs and university spin-outs.”

Also recommended was “veteran litigator Paul Harris, who made a high-profile move (to Dehns) in 2021”. Paul heads up the Dehns Litigation Group.
