Dehns No.1 UK firm for PCT filings
According to a study published by Managing IP on 3 December 2018, using data from CPA Global, Dehns was the no.1 firm in the UK for PCT filings which entered national phase from January 1 to December 31 2017.
Having filed 291 PCT applications, this has moved Dehns from 3rd in the UK rankings when this survey was last published two years ago, to first, and from 13th in Europe to 4th overall.
This follows Dehns being announced in a press release by CIPA earlier this year, as filing the most European Patent (EP) applications of any European firm in 2016. This was the first time a UK firm had topped the EP filing rankings for many years.
Dehns Senior Partner, Alex Piesold, commented: “Everyone at Dehns is delighted with this news. It is a longstanding aspect of Dehns’ strategy to continue developing our direct client work, and, based on the PCT filing figures, we are number one for that in the UK. This is testament to the hard work of our specialist patent attorneys, and the belief and trust that our clients have in Dehns to deliver the services and advice they need.”
