The firm brought its associated law firm Blair & Co. under its flag in March last year it issued a challenge for ministers to hurry up with multidisciplinary partnerships. The merger of these two firms effectively brought everything in the IP field under one brand name. The firm has grown from a one-man hand to nine fee-earners since 2001. There are two other partners at the firm and six other solicitors. The firm specializes in IP works, and the size of the firm compares favorably to the size of IP departments in the bigger firms.
