Dehns still number one

Dehns still number one

In a recent study of filing statistics published by Patent-Pilot, Dehns was named as the highest total patent application filer of all UK patent firms for the last four years, with more than 14,000 filings. Only three firms filed more than 10,000 patent applications in this time.  Dehns took over this number one spot in 2015 and has remained there since. 

The statistics include GB, EP and PCT patent filings added together. Dehns achieved the top spot mainly by its EP filings, where Dehns was also ranked in first place.  This impressive result did not detract from Dehns high level of activity in domestic filings (defined as priority filings represented by a British patent firm), where Dehns achieved second place among all UK firms.

Alex Piesold, Senior Partner, commented: “This study clearly demonstrates that Dehns has maintained its market leading position in terms of meeting the needs of our clients. We continue to deliver a wide range of services to clients both locally and all over the globe, and we are delighted that our client focus and commitment to innovation has helped position us at the number one spot.”
