Established European Patent and Trade Mark recruiter MWA has announced a collaboration with IP administration specialist IP-Safe to offer extra support to busy IP departments.
The two companies already have a longstanding relationship and the founding members have known each other for almost 20 years. They now plan to pool their knowledge to help clients source skills and improve efficiency.
Kieron Wright of MWA said the two companies were already well-known names in the European IP markets with a shared ethos.
He said the collaboration would focus on enhanced communication to make it easier for clients of both businesses to streamline their administrative processes and source the right talent for growth.
Kieron said: “As experts in IP recruitment, we understand the dynamics of a busy in-house IP department and IP firm and the significant resources required to manage the administrative aspects of patents and trademarks.
“We have teamed up with IP-Safe to provide our clients with the option of a secure and reliable IP administration service, provided by a reputable European provider.
“It won’t be relevant to all clients, but we are delighted that we now have the systems in place to offer that extra support should it be needed.”
