See what our clients are saying:

“The Manual is by far the best manual on patent, designs, and trademark law around the world. It succeeds in being comprehensive as well as including a large amount of useful detail. Despite the complexity in these constantly developing fields, the publishers succeed in keeping the information sufficiently up-to-date for the practitioner.” Helen Jones Gill Jennings & Every London
