Murgitroyd is a leading European provider of IP services, delivering patent and trade mark legal advice together with a breadth of IP support services to its international client base. Sovereign has backed the management team to support their growth ambitions and deliver an even greater global presence through a strategy of Buy & Build.
Sovereign took Murgitroyd private in a £65m deal in December 2019.
Sovereign has backed the management team to continue to develop its global presence, support service offerings, and technology platform against a backdrop of increasing complexity of multi-jurisdictional IP generation and protection, as well as continued outsourcing for both corporates and SMEs.
With a team of over 300, the business offers a rare proposition in the IP market by providing an integrated attorney led offering and associated IP support services capability.
Sovereign is also supporting Murgitroyd to further develop its tech-enabled platform and support service offerings.
Sovereign's investment and partnership will support our continued commitment to innovation and excellence. The team share our aspirations to deliver a broader scope of services which have extended global reach.
