“We provide a practical, comprehensive approach to Intellectual Property. We aim to put IP as a tool in the hands of our clients.”

Dr Kate Macdonald, Director, Capella IP

  • Intellectual Property is a business tool, like any other. It can open doors.

  • We offer an efficient and cost-effective service to Foreign Associates.

  • Patents, Utility Models, Registered Trade Marks, Registered Designs, and more.

How We Work

We provide you with the know-how to protect, manage, and use the Intellectual Property behind your ideas. We typically start by discussing your idea and plans at length to properly understand your ambitions and business model(s). It can be an adventure taking ideas to market and we support you along the way with timely, practical, expert advice. We strive for excellence because your idea deserves the best.

At Capella IP we have over 25 years of experience in private practice and industry, supporting individual inventors, SMEs and global corporations. We provide a bespoke service to suit your needs. Please get in touch for a free initial, no obligation consultation.  At each stage, we will always try to provide a cost estimate for time-based tasks before starting work, so you can choose if and how you want to proceed. We use fixed standard charges for more routine tasks. Please get in touch for a copy of our information leaflet(s) with more details of costs and procedures.


International Services for Foreign Attorneys

We offer an efficient and cost-effective service to Foreign Associates. Flexibility is built in – we can provide a transaction-only service, a full advisory service, or a mixture of both. Upon receiving an enquiry, we aim to respond within two working days, often sooner.

Working with Capella IP, you will find solid experience, personalised attention and keen pricing. We help manage costs whilst achieving your clients’ commercial aims. We have considerable experience in working across time zones and cultures and will work with you to build understanding and trust. For more information please see the page on our International Services.
