What our clients have to say
“We are most grateful for all the work Harrison IP has done for more than ten years for all our diverse companies and the establishment of our intellectual property portfolios, from patents to trademarks through designs in Europe and beyond. Not only has the work of Alec Messulam, Julia D’Arcy, Anne Lacaze-Masmonteil and their colleagues been outstanding, but their first-class professional advice has always been provided in a most pleasant and highly client minded proactive way. Their support has proved invaluable both in prosecution, due diligence processes and IP transactions, the issues at hand, if not the timeline, often being highly challenging.
We look forward to an ongoing fruitful collaboration to add further IP value to our businesses and have no hesitation in recommending their excellent and greatly appreciated service.”

At Thesis Technology Products Limited we have been very happy to rely upon the patent and trademark expertise of Harrison IP for over 20 years.
Alec Messulam, Anne Lacaze and Mark Smith have been wonderful with their in-depth advice and support to our business from the beginning, both with filing new registrations and with tackling issues. They have assisted us with many new registrations and provided critical suggestions, that we would not have otherwise considered, to maximise protection at home and internationally. Anne Lacaze has been invaluable simplifying the legal terms and processes for different country filings so that we fully understood how best to protect our property in each territory.
The Harrison IP team have successfully helped us tackle infringements across multiple territories as well as amicably overcome challenges to one of our new applications. Mark Smith has been particularly helpful with his advice, contacts and efforts on our behalf in Australia and Japan.
We now have the peace of mind that we have properly protected our valuable trademarks and also have a super team to call on if we need to defend our marks.
