EIP Digital encompasses computer hardware, software and machine learning/AI, electronics, wireless and telecommunications, applied physics and optics.

Strength in digital technology has been at the core of EIP and our continued success since we were founded in 2000. Renowned for its experience in patent drafting and strategic patent prosecution, and a go-to practice for litigation in high-tech patent cases, EIP's Digital team has been engaged in many of the highest profile patent litigation cases in the UK and Germany, and oppositions at the EPO, in recent years. EIP Digital team members are appointed to many high-value matters which require extraordinary levels of expertise, including licensing, technology standards, pre-litigation analysis, and litigation itself, with high rates of success. Many of these members operate at the intersection of various cutting areas such as electronics and healthtech, AI and drug discovery. We have attorneys with varied experience, with many having spent time in-house. They continue learning and developing to continually expand their knowledge of upcoming technologies such as machine learning and AI.
