“Craig Watson provides outstanding intellectual property advice and strategy as a top-rated and leading UK and European IP counsel. His strategic insights, patent prosecution strategies and understanding of industries allows him to excel in his approach to helping clients build strong patent portfolios in these regions and navigating clients through what can be difficult waters of changing patent landscapes, both from a regulatory perspective and from a competitive perspective. I highly recommend his services for any important patent and other intellectual property needs.”

"Matt is not only an exceptional Chartered and European Patent Attorney but is also an Imperial College physicist. This rare combination has proved to be invaluable in developing patent protection for the company’s technology.

“Craig has managed Aubin’s IP portfolio for nearly twenty years. Throughout this time he has provided sound and practical advice enabling Aubin to build up a significant and increasingly valuable IP position and we have come to trust his professional advice. Because of this as he moved to different firms we moved with him to maintain and assure ourselves of continuity support. I look forward to working with Craig and his team in the years to come.”
