About Us


Our corporate vision is “To be your preferred Intellectual Property Firm”, and we are committed to providing every client with a personalised, superior service that reflects their commercial needs.


 

AA Thornton is a leading firm of Intellectual Property professionals, including UK Chartered and European Patent Attorneys and Trade Mark Attorneys and IP Solicitors based in London and Munich. When former president of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA), Alfred Augustus Thornton founded A.A. Thornton & Co. back in 1911, excellent personal service was central to his ethos; one size never fits all. Over a hundred years later, that attitude is still at the heart of our company mission:“To provide every client with a personalised, superior service that reflects their commercial needs” and what drives our vision: “To be your preferred Intellectual Property Firm”.

We provide a comprehensive range of IP services. These cover all areas of patenttrade mark and design law and are structured to ensure full national and international protection. We also provide a full domain name service, covering both use and registration, as well as having our own in-house litigation team. Our clients range from multinational corporations, to SMEs, to individual inventors, across a broad spectrum of industries. Our client base covers the UK and many other parts of the globe, notably Europe, North America, India and the Far East.

At AA Thornton we foster very close relationships with our clients, maintaining a proactive and client-focused approach. We take the time to understand our clients’ needs and offer clear practical advice that is relevant to the individual and their business. We’ve been lucky enough to work with a number of our clients for several decades as we remain innovative, reliable and flexible to change.

Our core values are embedded in our culture and philosophy, and provide a common language for how we behave throughout the firm. We pride ourselves on the quality of our work and our professional integrity, and believe that it’s our people that make the difference.
