Olaf C Rock B Sc (Chem. Eng) is a Chartered, and a
European, Patent Attorney; a UK Trade Mark Attorney, and a Professional
Representative before the Office for the Harmonization of the Internal
Market (Trade Marks and Designs). His experience of intellectual
property covers forty years starting in the Civil Service, moving
into corporate practice and currently in private practice.
For over twenty years Rock and Company has built up
an extensive background of practical and theoretical experience
providing clients with information and action involving all areas
of intellectual property.
This has included protecting inventions
(by patents), designs (by registration and design right),
good will (by trade marks both registered and unregistered)
and publications, software and data bases (by copyright).
We carry out searches based on a number of possible
criteria including establishing whether or not a concept is novel.
We prepare and submit intellectual property applications and prosecute
them to grant in the United Kingdom, Europe and throughout the World.
Following grant we undertake maintenance where required. In the
event that rights are infringed (whether those rights belong to
our client or to somebody else) we advise and undertake or instruct
action to resolve the matter.
