“Collaborating with world-class research institutions, large corporates and small and medium-sized enterprises across the spectrum of technologies is par for the course for FRKelly. “The biggest patent agency in Ireland”, it has developed a recognised international network of which more than half of its clientele take advantage. Key instructions include managing the global IP portfolio of ground-breaking renewable energy company Openhydro Group. The appointment of Maura O’Connell as managing partner has supercharged the storied boutique; major life sciences players seek out her invaluable advice, with particular regard for her expertise in post-grant challenges at the European Patent Office (EPO). UK-chartered patent attorney Anna Hally is one of the select few litigators in Ireland who can represent clients before the forthcoming Unified Patent Court; she has carved an impressive niche in the biotechnology area, having also managed the portfolios of world-leading corporations. Physics, electronics and industrial engineering are the pillars of Philip Coyle’s international practice; a filer and drafter par excellence, he has also fought fiercely for esteemed US clients in cross-border disputes. Widely regarded as a leading mind in Irish intellectual property, ICT head David Brophy is a wordsmith who constructs crystal-clear claims and persuasive arguments.”
