About Us

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 30 years.  To us, this is a great combination of experience, business acumen and drive.  Our Firm also comprises various secretarial and support staff.

We advise upon all aspects of Intellectual Property and guide our Clients through the processes for protecting and enforcing their 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.

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.

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

European Patent & Trade Mark Attorneys Neil Chambers

Neil Chambers

CPA EPA CTMA MEng. MSc. AMIChemE

Neil is passionate about all Intellectual Property (IP) but especially Patents, Trade Marks and Designs.

His interest in Patents stems from a general wish to know how things work or operate, and a broad technical background in engineering assists that tremendously!  Neil has experienced both sides of the coin – the Attorney protecting inventions and the Inventor hoping to interest others in his IP.

As for Trade Marks and Designs, good branding and protection for the IP is key to sales and, through years of experience, Neil provides commercially focussed advice, which is targeted at your immediate and foreseeable requirements.

Neil set up Burrows Chambers Associates in 2012, joining forces with Anthony Burrows, who originally trained Neil back in 2002.  Neil previously worked for the global patents group of a multi-national pharmaceutical company and, prior to that, worked for a well-known London Patent Firm for many years.

Neil lives in Letchworth Garden City with his wife and three daughters, who keep him very busy at home!
