Terms of Business

General Legal Information

Allen IP Limited is a British Limited company registered in England under No. 06651622. Our VAT registration No. is 132650048. Our registered office is at 3 Windsor Terrace, Off Hagley Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B16 8UH, United Kingdom.


The expressions ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’, and ‘the Company’ are used to refer to Allen IP Limited, and the expressions ‘you’, ‘your’, ‘yourself’, and ‘client’ refer to the person with whom we contract under these Terms of Business. The expression ‘Intellectual Property’ is abbreviated to ‘IP’, and the expression ‘Terms of Business’ is abbreviated to ‘Terms’.


This document sets out our obligations to you and your obligations to us. Following receipt of a copy of these Terms, or direction to these Terms on the website, it is assumed you accept our Terms, and we will work on that basis. These Terms supersede any previous Terms or agreement with you.


These Terms apply to all matters for which we receive instructions to perform services for you. If you send us instructions, questions, or continue to send us instructions, you shall be deemed to request that we perform services for you on the basis of these Terms. If we perform services, a contract will come into effect between us, and the contract will be governed by these Terms. We are not obliged to accept instructions. We may treat different matters for which we perform services under separate contracts between us, at our option.
We reserve the right to modify our Terms from time to time. We may inform you of such modifications. However, you should check our website or contact us in writing, for example at, to establish which version of our Terms applies at any time. These Terms apply until you are notified in writing of alternative Terms. Our Terms are valid only if agreed by Matthew Allen. The services are provided by Allen IP Limited and the contract to provide services is between you and Allen IP Limited, not with Matthew Allen, or any other individual.

Engagement letter

When you instruct us, we may also send you an Engagement Letter that will specify services we are going to provide. The Engagement Letter may provide further specific terms and conditions applying to the work that has been instructed or the work we propose to do. These Terms together with any specific terms in an Engagement Letter constitute the entire agreement with you. If there is any conflict between these Terms and the terms in an Engagement Letter, the terms in the Engagement Letter shall take precedence. When carrying out services, we have no responsibility to carry out work or advise you outside the scope of your instructions or our Engagement Letter.


We shall keep confidential any information which you provide to us, unless the information has already been provided to us from another source, or the information is in the public domain, except where disclosure is required by law or regulation, or it is necessary to disclose in other exceptional circumstances such as to our professional indemnity insurers, or other professional advisors appointed by us, or other circumstances permitted by our Privacy Policy mentioned below.

Professional regulation

Matthew Allen, the Managing Director of Allen IP Limited, is a UK and European Patent Attorney regulated by the Intellectual Property Regulation Board (“IPREG”) and the Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office (“epi”). The rules of conduct by which UK Patent Attorneys are bound can be found on the IPREG website Rules of conduct by which European Patent Attorneys are bound can be found on the epi website From time to time, it may be appropriate for Attorneys other than Matthew Allen to act for you, for example an Attorney on the website may be recommended so as to ensure a match between the Attorney's technological field and the technological field of your invention. In such a case, we will identify to you the other Attorney in advance and obtain your approval. Where Attorneys other than Matthew Allen act for you, they do so directly in their own personal or corporate capacity, under their own Terms of Business, not these Terms of Business.

Conflict of interest

Before we take you on as a new client, or take on a new matter for an existing client, we carry out a check to identify conflicts of interest that may prevent us from acting for you, and we shall inform you of any actual or potential conflict of interest, but our check cannot be relied on as infallible. Therefore, when you appoint us, or appoint us in relation to a new matter, it is important that you identify any companies or individuals you believe we will be unable to represent without a conflict of interest arising.
Our professional regulators’ rules do not allow us to work for two clients whose interests in a matter conflict, unless both clients give informed written consent to such an arrangement. Sometimes a conflict cannot be resolved even by written consent, and in such a case you agree that we may at our sole discretion choose to continue to act for one party to the conflict. Some conflicts arise after we have be have been acting for two clients. If we consider there to be an actual or potential conflict of interest, we reserve the right to decline to act further, at least in relation to the area of the conflict, for one of the clients.
We have no obligation to disclose to you any information in respect of which we owe a duty of confidentiality to a third party.

Professional indemnity insurance, and liability

Allen IP Limited has professional indemnity insurance provided by PAMIA Ltd, administered on their behalf by Thomas Miller Professional Indemnity of 90 Fenchurch Street London EC3M 4ST. Our professional indemnity insurance ensures that you are protected in the unlikely and unfortunate event that anything should go wrong. Our liability is limited to the lesser of your direct loss and £1 million. Our professional indemnity insurance exceeds the minimum value our regulator, IPREG, deems appropriate. We review the sum insured from time to time. We have no liability regarding the adequacy of the sum insured. We are not liable for the actions of third parties who are instructed by us to do work for you. As of 18th April 2019, we have not had a claim made against us.
The liability of Allen IP Limited is limited to the lesser of a sum attributed to us by a court, or the limit of our cover under our professional indemnity insurance, or any limit if liability set out in any engagement letter.  The limitation on liability shall not apply to any liability on our part for death, personal injury, or fraud, or otherwise where such limitation is prohibited by law. The provisions regarding liability shall apply notwithstanding the termination of our engagement for any reason. If you consider there may be circumstances in which you may suffer loss or damage arising from our services which exceeds the amount recoverable under these Terms, you should consider putting in place your own supplementary insurance.
We shall not be liable for any failure or delay in performance of your instructions if it is due to an event beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, war, natural disasters, industrial disputes, protests, fire, storm, explosion, national emergencies, acts of terrorism, or failure of our or third party telecommunications or computer systems.

Our Privacy Policy and data protection

Our Privacy Policy at is incorporated into these Terms. Hence, your acceptance of these Terms has the consequence of your acceptance of our Privacy Policy. You may obtain a copy of our Privacy Policy on request in writing.

The Client

The (natural or legal) person who provides instructions to us will be regarded as the client. At our discretion, we can take instructions from anyone in your organisation that purports to be able to give us instructions, unless and until your organisation instructs us otherwise. If instructions are from an individual of a company, and the individual is not clearly a Director of the company, we may, at our option, require confirmation from a Director of the company that the individual is authorised to instruct us on behalf of the company. If more than one person is collaborating, for example joint applicants, and the persons ask us to act for them, we will require the persons to nominate a single person regarded as the client from whom we obtain instructions. The client is responsible for paying us, unless it is otherwise agreed in writing in advance between us, the client instructing us, and the person other than the client that intends to pay us. As our client, you should note that these Terms contain limitations on our liability to you and you should ensure that they meet your requirements.

Advice for named client only

Our advice is given solely for your benefit. No other party may rely on our advice to you without our express permission in advance, and we do not accept a duty of care to any person who is not our client pursuant to these Terms. For the purposes of the UK Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 it is confirmed that our services are provided only for our named client, and these Terms are only enforceable by you or us, not by any third party.
If we are instructed by a first entity to give advice to a second entity, the instructing first entity is our client, and responsible for paying our fees and the only person to whom we owe a duty of care. Where we are instructed by a first entity to take further instructions or payment by another entity, the instructing first entity is again our client. If initial instructions are received from an introducer that is not the ultimate beneficiary of our advice, the introducer will be regarded as our client, until it has been demonstrated in writing, by the introducer or the introduced client, that an introduced client has been put on notice of these Terms, that the introduced client has instructed us that they wish to be responsible for instructing us and paying our charges, and, and that any performance of services by us for the introduced client will result in a legally binding contract between us and the introduced client on the basis set out in these Terms. Following payment for our services by the introduced client, the introduced client will become our client, and we will owe a duty of care to the introduced client in place of the introducer.


Whilst we are instructed to carry out services for you, you give us express authority to complete and sign documents and forms in your name, and sign on your behalf, necessary so as to carry out your instructions. You also authorise us to make written documents and oral statements on your behalf. You also agree to give us a general authorisation to exercise our discretion on your behalf. Exercising our discretion may sometimes cause us to deviate from your exact instructions. One example is to resolve a typographical error in the correspondence giving your approval. Where discretion is exercised in relation to a significant substantive issue we will generally endeavour to report it to you after it has been exercised. You agree to indemnify us in respect of all claims, costs and expenses that may result from the exercise of that authority.

Communications and instructions

Instructions are accepted in English only. If your organisation is based in a non-English speaking country, you should provide the full name and email address at least one English speaking individual at your organisation authorised to instruct us on your behalf.
You must provide all relevant information which is true to the best of your knowledge, accurate, and not misleading, in order for us to advise you. We shall not be responsible for any loss arising from reliance on inaccurate or incomplete information supplied by you or on your behalf.
You are responsible for ensuring we have up to date contact details for you. You must provide the name of a person authorised to act/instruct on behalf of the client, an email address of the person authorised to act/instruct on behalf of the client, and a telephone number, fax number (if you have one), and your postal address. You may provide details of more then one person at your organisation authorised to act/instruct on behalf of the client. You must notify us of any changes to contact details. We will send communications to the last address or number notified to us in fulfilment of our duty to you, and we do not accept responsibility for loss if the contact details given to us are obsolete.
In the absence of specific instructions to the contrary, we shall assume that we are instructed to take the minimum action to keep your IP rights pending. If you become insolvent, or enter administration or liquidation, or are in breach of these Terms, or have not supplied advance payment where requested, we reserve the right to not take such minimum steps.
Processing IP rights can sometimes take multiple years. There may be long periods of inactivity, followed by an event which requires your urgent action. You must provide written instructions by the deadline we give you. The deadline we give you is not always the same as the deadline for us to carry out your instructions. We normally provide a deadline for you, and if we do not, your deadline is 5 working days before the relevant deadline given to us. Instructions and information provided must be accurate, complete and comprehensible, and where it is not liability will not be accepted. 
Written instructions should be provided by the deadline given. Oral instructions should be confirmed in writing by the deadline we give you. We accept no responsibility for loss of rights if you fail to confirm oral instructions. However, at our discretion, we may confirm your oral instructions in writing, and if you do not rescind them by the deadline given to you, we may accept the oral instructions and act on them.
‘Late instructions’ are those that do not give us reasonable time to meet deadlines given to us, for example by IP Offices. While we naturally endeavour to meet deadlines given to us, we do not accept liability for failure to meet deadlines given to us when your instructions are late. If we receive late instructions, we may not be able to implement them in time, causing loss of rights. If we attempt to take action despite your late instructions or late payment, and your rights are lost, your payment will not be refunded. Moreover, additional ‘urgency’ charges may be levied following late instructions or late payment.
Due to the nature of the internet, we cannot accept any liability for any disclosure due to interception of communications with you over the internet or by email, or liability for late receipt, non receipt or receipt filtered to a junk folder. You should inform us of information that should not be sent over the internet, and we will let you know if we can implement your instructions.
We advise you to carry out security checks on any electronic communications from us, including computer disk, email or internet. We do not accept responsibility for any viruses or malware that may cause harm to your hardware or software.
Email is prone to error. If an email is not received, or filtered into our spam folder, we cannot be held responsible. You should not assume we are acting on your emails or correspondence unless you receive personal acknowledgement of receipt of your email or correspondence. It is your responsibility to ensure you receive personal acknowledgement of receipt of your email or correspondence.
We shall advise you of deadlines for actions or instructions that are required from you, unless we inform you that work for you is ‘on-hold’ until instructions or payment is received. We generally try to provide one or more reminder in order for you to meet a deadline but we are not obliged to give reminders, if you have failed to provide instructions to remind you, or payment.
We normally demand prior approval for every action we take on your behalf. You can waive this requirement by instructing us in writing in advance.
If you appoint another professional representative or withdraw the appointment of us as your professional representative, you must let us know, and we reserve the right to levy our charges and supplier charges for work done prior to you informing us, and any charges for work done thereafter to update the status of our file in our records, and report same to you, and any supplier charges up to the date of the receipt of your instructions, and any additional work that the supplier should reasonably do to update the status of the file in their records.
If you are an intermediary, you must provide the following details of the client, or the ultimate client in a chain if applicable, i.e. the postal address of the client, the name of a person authorised to act/instruct on behalf of the client, and an email address of the person authorised to act/instruct on behalf of the client. You must inform us of any changes.
If you are an intermediary, and your client is the IP rights owner, and they have informed you of the abandonment of their rights, or the appointment of another representative or withdrawal of the appointment of you as a professional representative, you must let us know, and we reserve the right to levy charges as specified in the 'Charges and payment' section of these Terms.
Upon your clear written instructions that you do not wish to proceed with any case, we will treat the case as abandoned. We will endeavour where possible to prevent or minimise further costs being incurred by us and any third party working on our behalf. We reserve the right to levy charges as specified in the 'Charges and payment' section of these Terms.
Whether you are an intermediary or a so-called direct client, you should also notify us if there is any change of the owner of an Intellectual Property right, a change of name of the person giving us instructions, or a change of address of the IP owner not least because some changes must be officially registered in order to preserve maximum rights.

Third parties acting for you

In the course of our work for you, we may need to instruct a third party (e.g. a patent attorney or trademark attorney in another country, a solicitor or barrister, a translator, or a draftsperson) to perform work. We will generally try to identify in advance if we are using a third party, but are under no obligation to do that.
You may be required to sign a Power of Attorney to appoint a third party. Failure to complete the Power of Attorney may result in you losing your IP rights.
We try to select third parties with reasonable levels of care, believing they can perform the work required, but we are not liable for any loss as a consequence of involvement of third parties. If you would like us to make enquiries as to their level of professional indemnity insurance cover, if any, you should let us know when you become aware of the third party.


If you instruct a third party to pay renewals, we will not monitor the renewal deadlines, and we will not forward any correspondence relating to renewals, such as reminders, from the relevant IP authority, unless you request we do that in advance, and you accept our charges for doing that.

Our files

Our files (paper and/or electronic) relating to the work we do for you are our property.
It is our policy to store paper files relating to inactive cases for a limited period only.  As a general rule, such paper files, including correspondence, draft documents, and other papers, will be destroyed six years from the last correspondence on a case. We will remind you in advance before the file is to be destroyed. In the absence of contrary instructions, we will assume that you are content with this arrangement. If you do not wish our paper file to be destroyed you should advise us in writing. If you would like a copy of an inactive file, or an extract from it, you should advise us in writing. We reserve the right to make a reasonable charge for withdrawing an inactive file from storage, at your request and/or for making copies, corresponding, and related file administration. The same policy applies to email correspondence and electronic records. We reserve the right to decline to provide copies until all unpaid invoices and charges for copies of the file have been settled. If you choose to transfer your work to another professional advisor, we will copy the file or extract of the file at your request, we will levy a charge for copies and our professional time, and we will release the copy of the file or part of the file when all charges have been paid by you.

Charges and payment

Payment currency - Unless otherwise agreed in writing in advance, our invoices are payable in GB Pounds Sterling.
What we charge you for - Our services are charged according to the professional time taken to do a particular job, standard charges for particular tasks, together with any expenses we incur on your behalf.
Our professional time charges are calculated by reference to an hourly rate for an attorney or other person. The hourly rate that is current at the time the work is done applies. Professional time charges may be adjusted to take into account factors such as late or incomplete instructions, the size and complexity of the matter. Fixed service charges may apply in relation to specific tasks by advance agreement. Fixed service charges and hourly rates may be adjusted from time to time. We will try to notify you in advance of any changes, but changes to pricing will apply regardless of an inadvertent failure to notify you in advance.
All work that we do is chargeable including, but not limited to, opening and closing files, sending and receiving and reviewing all types of communications.
If we work on your behalf with a third party, we pass on to you any charges from the third party. Supplier charges are outside of our control. We may charge a mark-up to cover any possible increase in supplier charges due to exchange rate fluctuations. We may also levy additional supplier charges in excess of expected supplier charges at a later date.
Expenses may include any supplier, photocopying and printing costs, banking charges, telecommunications charges, postal expenses, reasonable travel costs, and meeting expenses. You will be responsible for reimbursement of such expenses.
Estimates - Sometimes, the nature of the work is such that the professional time it will take cannot be known before the work is begun but we very often provide an estimate for such a piece of work. Any estimate will be given in good faith based on our knowledge at the time but such an estimate is not binding, for example because the time required and costs may be affected by matters beyond our control. Estimates should not be viewed as fixed costs under any circumstances unless agreed by us in writing in advance. We shall endeavour to inform you if any estimate must be substantially exceeded, before doing so, but are not obliged to do so.
Capping charges - You may set an upper limit on the charges that may be incurred without your explicit instructions you should inform us in writing in advance bearing in mind that you may lose rights if the limit does not allow us to carry out the work we intend to do.
Post filing charges - It should be understood that after filing an application for a patent, a design registration, or a trademark registration, further charges may be incurred. We will try to foreshadow post filing charges in advance but we are not obliged to do so.
Charges for minimum action to keep rights pending and minimum action to keep you informed of official or third party correspondence - In respect of taking the minimum action to keep your IP rights (or those of the client) pending we are entitled to charge you accordingly. IP rights applications can give rise to ongoing responsibilities to take action, for example to use a trademark. IP rights applications give rise to actions taken by relevant IP Offices. IP rights applications can sometimes give rise to relevant IP Offices taking action to inform you of IP rights applications by third parties, for example because they may conflict with your  (or the client's) application. Also, actions can be taken by third parties. We need to be able to report these actions to you, and will make appropriate charges. In the absence of such instructions, we reserve the right to invoice charges that are incurred.  It is therefore important that an application or granted right is no longer of sufficient interest to allow any charges to be incurred, that you clearly instruct us.
Certain IP Offices automatically as a matter of public policy monitor third party rights that may conflict with your IP rights or at least be of interest, and correspondence with us to inform you. We reserve the right to pass such correspondence on to you, and levy our charges in respect of it.
Changes in official fees – IP Offices change their fees from time to time. We reserve the right to pass on any change in official fees that occurs after receiving your instructions, and before the deadline for paying the fee.
Special charging arrangements - We reserve the right to review and vary any special charging arrangements, for example based on a specified number of cases per annum, at any time.
Value Added Tax (VAT) – VAT will be charged, the current rate being 20%, to UK clients and to clients based within the European Union, unless they are VAT registered and provide us with their VAT registration details. VAT, when charged, applies to our time and expenses that are liable for VAT. Official fees paid by us are generally VAT exempt.
Payment on account - We often require payment on account before undertaking work, for example if large official fees and/or other supplier charges and/or expenses are to be incurred or if a client is relatively new to us. Our invoices for payments on account must be paid directly to us in full with cleared funds by the date given to you.
Offering you credit – At our discretion, we may you offer you credit. The amount of credit we offer you, and the number of days to pay, may be set by reference to your organisations rating by Creditsafe or another suitable organisation. Where credit has been provided, our invoices must be paid directly to us in full with cleared funds within 30 days of the invoice date.
Clearing of funds - You should allow time for clearance of funds. If your payment has not cleared by the requested date, unless we agree with you in writing to the contrary, we reserve the right to suspend work, and to decline to undertake any further work, with the consequence that your intellectual property rights may be lost if the situation is not rectified by you in time. Regardless of any such suspension of work, payment of outstanding invoices is still required.
Limiting further charges - You must inform us in writing advance if you no longer want to incur charges on your case(s). You will be liable for all charges for work done up to the receipt of your instructions, and for any additional work that should reasonably be done before the status of the file is updated in our records, reported to you, and any charges incurred by our suppliers for work done to the date of the receipt of your instructions, and any additional work that the supplier should reasonably do before the status of the file is updated in their records.
Consequences of late or non-payment - We reserve the right to charge you interest at 5% over the Barclays Bank PLC UK variable base rate on any overdue account, and we reserve the right to take legal action for unpaid invoices, and our reasonable costs in seeking payment.

Making payments to us

Please quote our Invoice Number (and if possible your company name) on all payments.
Bank name: Barclays Bank PLC, 15 Colmore Row, Birmingham B3 2BH, United Kingdom
Account name: Allen IP Limited
Account Number: 13877728
Sort Code: 20-07-89
Swift Code: BARCGB22
IBAN: GB57 BARC 2007 7113 8777 28
You must pay the charges associated with Swift and IBAN payments, in other words we must receive the amount of the invoice. Underpayment may result in no action and loss of your IP rights.
This method normally ensures your funds reach our account on the same or next day.
Sometimes bank payments get lost. As the client, we will depend on you providing us with sufficient information such as the date the funds can be expected, and if applicable, making enquiries with the sending bank to locate the payment. We will make enquiries with our bank when we have sufficient information from you.
You should not assume we have received your payment unless you receive personal acknowledgement of receipt of your payment, and it is your responsibility to ensure you receive personal acknowledgement of receipt of your payment.
BY CASH at a Barclays bank:
This method normally ensures your funds reach our account on the same day.
BY CHEQUE from a UK bank:
Cheques are subject to a cheque administration fee of £50. Please make cheques payable to Allen IP Limited. Please note cheques take up to 5 working days to clear. Our work may be postponed until your cheque has cleared.

Opening hours

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm, excluding UK public holidays, and you should ensure your instructions, and payment if requested, reach us within our opening hours on the deadline given to you, or action may not be not taken by us. Liability will not be accepted for action not taken.

Use of your name

Occasionally, we may like to mention the fact that we represent you in our communications with third parties, such as but not limited to marketing via our website. You agree that this clause fulfils any responsibility to secure client consent under the codes of conduct of IPREG or the epi.

Limitations on searches

Any searches you request may be done by us, by an IP Office, or by a specialist supplier appointed by us. Due to the inherent nature of searching, no search can be guaranteed to be comprehensive or accurate. We endeavour to inform you of specific limitations when reporting search results to you. However, you accept that failure to identify a particular document in a search does not itself justify a cause of action against us.

Indemnity for threat of infringement proceedings

If we are instructed by you to send a warning on your behalf to a third party, you agree to indemnify us against the risk of us being sued for making an unjustified threat of infringement proceedings. Not becoming a party to proceedings enables us to objectively represent you in contentious proceedings.

Legal privilege

Generally, communications between a UK Patent Attorney and their client are privileged under Section 280 of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988. So, other people are not entitled to discover the content of such communications to the extent they relate to professional advice. Privileged status of a communication can be lost in some circumstances. You should inform us if you require further information in this regard.


We aim for good long term relationships with our clients. However, occasionally misunderstandings may arise. In the unlikely event, you have a problem, or you feel dissatisfied with our work, please initially raise your concern with us. This tends to resolve most concerns. We may offer another patent attorney to provide a second opinion. We have a complaints policy to deal with complaints, which is available on request. If you still have a complaint, you are able to contact our regulatory body IPREG. If they also cannot resolve the complaint, you are able to refer it to the UK Legal Services Ombudsman (

Termination of our relationship

You may terminate our relationship at any time by writing to us. We may terminate our relationship at any time by writing to you. If the relationship is terminated, whoever by, you agree to pay our charges and expenses up to the time of termination, including monies due to our suppliers on your behalf. You also agree we need not supply you copies from our files until outstanding amounts are settled, including payment for relevant copies.


The courts have extensive powers and discretion to decide which party should bear the costs of proceedings. You are responsible to pay our charges and expenses directly despite the court ordering another party to contribute towards your costs.

Governing law and jurisdiction

You agree that English law shall apply to the interpretation of our relationship with you, these Terms, and any non-contractual obligations arising in connection, and that English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any disputes arising in relation to it.

Questions or comments

If you have any questions or comments about any aspect of these Terms and Conditions, please contact us at Your questions or comments do not override the Terms and conditions unless and until we have informed you in writing.

Acceptance of Terms

Notwithstanding that these Terms automatically apply when we provide services to you, we would appreciate if you would confirm your acceptance of these Terms by signing and returning a copy of these Terms.
