We are honoured to work with a great range of inspiring clients, including individual innovators, startups, spin-outs, SMEs, Universities and large global corporations.

Our clients have kindly agreed to provide testimonials about our work:

“Peter is pragmatic where needed, flexible, responsive and able to work independently with our inventors. Peter and his team also provide prior art searches, not shying away from recommending not to proceed with an invention if he judges that prior art leaves little room for valuable claims. He is well respected by our inventors, several having switched to Peter from other agents, provides clear, concise, prompt and highly competent advice.”

Dialog Semiconductor

“Durham has benefited from Peter’s working style which is open, friendly and pragmatic. He is very well respected by all the academics he has worked with and he quickly develops strong working relationships with them. He explains complicated IP concepts very clearly and, in turn, grasps complicated and sometimes obscure, aspects of Physical Science presented by the academics. I am particularly appreciative of his very high level of integrity.

The features above ensure his work is always of very high quality, very efficient and totally without surprise charges or billing problems. The academics and myself also have great confidence that he presents Durham’s arguments to Patent Offices in the most compelling possible light. His results over the years support that assumption.”

Durham University

“I have used the services of Scintilla to advise, assist and process a significant portfolio of live patent applications and awarded European and US patents. I have found Scintilla to be highly responsive in delivering a credible and reliable level of technical and legal competence.

I have also found the precision and accuracy of their documentation exceptional and of a standard considerably exceeding that which I have experienced when I have dealt with other similar companies. Scintilla consistently demonstrates a high degree of professionalism in their work.”

Paul Evans, Nottingham Trent University

“We’ve worked with Scintilla for various IP related pieces of work. I’ve always found them efficient, helpful and straight forward to deal with.  I’m comfortable that we can pass them complex matters and have them handled in our best interests both legally and commercially.”

Calum Murray, Amiqus Resolution

“Scintilla have been extremely useful for us, helping to understand the value of our IP in its wider view. They have undertaken an IP Audit investigating our possibilities for patents and to give us confidence that we do not violate existing patents. It also comes with valuable recommendations about working practices with external organisations, the value of Design rights and Trademarks as part of our IP portfolio.”

“Scintilla provided COHESION with an IP Audit which delivered substantive knowledge and strategic insight for shaping and protecting our current solutions and future technology development. I was most impressed with Peter’s professionalism and technical understanding and look forward to working with Scintilla again.”

Euan Cameron, COHESION Medical

“Scintilla were a pleasure to work with. Their in-depth knowledge of the patent system and adaptability to understand our domain made the process simple, efficient, and very effective. I look forward to working with the entire team again soon.”

“Scintilla IP provided excellent service and advice which suited my business needs.  I chose Scintilla due to the “small business” knowledge which was more appropriate to us than a larger firm.  I feel that Peter McBride and his team provide value for money, and a service which is personal and efficient.  I would not hesitate to recommend Scintilla and will hopefully use them again in the future.”

Scintilla startup client

“Following our recent work completed by Scintilla, I would like to thank Peter and the team for the professionalism whilst preparing our patent application for our Off Grid Power solution and look forward to working with you in the future.”

Paul Brooks Snr, CCL

“I would definitely recommend Scintilla for anyone in the electronics field. The level of understanding is very high and the service excellent “

“Very professional, good value, high quality service made as easy as it could be. Highly recommended for software IPR”

“Peter performed an FTO analysis and drafted a patent for Razorbill Instruments in August 2015. As an early stage start-up it was extremely valuable that Peter was able to offer an extremely reasonable upfront quote for the services. Peter was able to continue to offer a huge amount of advice and support whilst remaining within the original quote and we were able to submit a very high quality patent. The after-care service was also extremely good and Peter was able to talk through the examiners report thoroughly with us. Since then we have engaged Scintilla to draft and file a series of patents and have continued to be pleased with the quality of the service we have received”

Alex Ward, Razorbill

“Without hesitation I can recommend Scintilla IP for a very simple and compelling reason – by working with Scintilla IP my first patent has now been granted! As a micro-SME new to the world of patents I have been impressed by the helpfulness and quality of work shown by Peter McBride and his team at Scintilla IP. I hope to continue working with Scintilla IP in future and I heartily recommend them to other inventors.”

“Scintilla were a pleasure to work with. Their in-depth knowledge of the patent system and adaptability to understand our domain made the process simple, efficient, and very effective. I look forward to working with the entire team again soon.”

Mark Evans, Kommando

“Being in charge of a small startup company with limited knowledge and resources in the patent area, I am very pleased with services provided by Peter McBride and Scintilla. I get the kind of professional attendance that my company requires, provided in a timely and very competent manner.”
