I would recommend Dean and his excellent team at PatWorld for patent searches. He has handled searching matters for me when I was in-house and when in private practice. He is knowledgeable and attentive and a generally all round nice guy! Simon Bradbury – Patent Attorney and Partner at Appleyard Lees
