Our Firm, Burrows Chambers Associates, are Chartered and European Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys, and European Design Attorneys.  We are specialists in the field of Intellectual Property (IP) and are based in Letchworth Garden City, the World's first Garden City.

We are ideally located in North Herts, just 40 miles from London and the Courts, and located right in the middle of the so-called 'Golden Triangle' formed by the University of London, Cambridge University and Oxford University. 

We advise upon all aspects of Intellectual Property and guide our Clients through the processes for protecting and enforcing your IP, whether that be registered rights – such as Patents, Registered Trade Marks and Registered Designs – or unregistered rights – such as Copyright, Unregistered Designs, Unregistered Trade Marks, Confidential Information and Trade Secrets.  We advise our Clients upon the best form(s) of protection for their ideas / inventions / creations and, where applicable, we assist in obtaining registered rights for their IP.  We also provide overall IP strategy, due diligence, IP audits and guidance for businesses and individuals. 

We are experienced in contentious matters, and assist our Clients with enforcing and defending their IP against third parties.  Our Firm has a wealth of experience of contentious Patents, Trade Marks, Designs and Copyright proceedings in the UK, Europe and beyond.

Our Firm comprises Anthony Burrows and Neil Chambers, who joined forces in February 2012, although Anthony has been based in Letchworth Garden City for over 25 years.  To us, this is a great combination of experience, business acumen and drive.  Our Firm also comprises various secretarial and support staff.

We believe that it is important that businesses of all sizes take an active interest in, at least, protecting their IP.  Enforcing IP is costly; however, and only used as a last resort.  Most registerable IP can be registered at reasonable cost and typically provides a deterrent to competitors, who will be mindful of your IP.  Marking all of your products and company literature, including your website, enhances the deterrent effect.  Typically, the deterrent effect also provides an immeasurable financial benefit to your business, as reduced competition helps the profitability of your business.

IP is a complex area of law and we try to make your experience of IP as trouble-free and stress-free as possible.  We act for individuals, small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and right up to multinational companies, and look after our Clients' interests in the United Kingdom and Europe, especially, but also Japan, the United States, and World-wide, as part of global IP strategies.

With Burrows Chambers Associates, your IP is in safe hands.

We are regulated by IPReg, the Intellectual Property Regulation Board, and protect our Clients interests through professional indemnity insurance.
