HP&P is home to 11 fully qualified Attorneys with considerable experience in intellectual property matters over many years of practice and 40 highly specialized technical counsellors-patent translators. Three of our Attorneys are European Patent Attorneys. Most of our Attorneys are active members of various national and international professional bodies and regularly contribute to several publications in the IP field, both Greek and International.
At HP&P we serve our foreign clients in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. We closely collaborate with 40 technical counsellors, who have accredited degrees (the majority including post-graduate studies as well) in sciences, (e.g. physics, chemistry/biochemistry, biology and electrical/electronic, chemical and mechanical engineering). Most of them are or have been involved in academic research. They are competent translators for English, French and German and regularly provide consulting services of the highest quality, based on their technical expertise in patent matters.
Our client base covers a very broad spectrum including law firms and prestigious companies in the fields of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, cosmetics, constructions, telecommunications, energy, biotechnology, food, alcoholic and soft beverages, fashion, finance and banking, education, and many more. Our clients range from the trademark and patent departments of large and small international companies directly represented by HP&P, through to multi-national and small companies represented by HP&P indirectly through trademark and patent agents from all over the world. In addition to our intellectual property activities in Greece, HP&P maintains a close collaboration with outstanding Law Offices in Cyprus and the Arabic countries and has acquired experience in the handling of trademark and patent matters in these countries for many years. In addition to that, our broad network of carefully selected IP law firms, with whom we have built a strong relationship of trust and confidence over the years, permits us to manage our clients’ IP portfolios in each and every country of the world where their interests extend.
