A dominant player in the global IP space, Dentons has cultivated a refined non-contentious IP and data offering in Scotland. No transaction is too challenging or negotiation too fraught for the patent group to negotiate; while the abundant resources of the wider firm mean that cross-border and multi-disciplinary instructions can be seamlessly handled.
