The following is an excerpt from IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals, about Seed Intellectual Property Law Group LLP:

"Abundant in technical talent, Seed IP is a discerning choice for innovative companies in all industries and disciplines seeking the best in domestic and international patent prosecution and strategic counselling. With bespoke teams configured in agile fashion to suit the demands of each matter, the ensemble’s internal culture of collaboration enhances connectivity with clients, creating the ideal conditions for an efficient service that directly addresses companies’ needs. On the life sciences front, the seniority and industry knowledge of specialists including Karl Hermanns, Stephen Rosenman and Samuel Webb confer a major advantage. Hermanns is in it for the science and the business, and gets a kick out of establishing strong patent foundations for early-stage companies and surveying competitive landscapes. Rosenman previously worked in a start-up environment, giving him a first-hand understanding of the challenges facing newly established businesses. With a stint in-house at a pharmaceutical company on his CV, Webb speaks the language of clients fluently In the high-technology domain, there are also quality options aplenty. In software, Steven Lawrenz and Kevan Morgan both demonstrate a flair for high-level portfolio and transactional briefs. So too do David Carlson – who chairs the electrical engineering and computer science group – and Brooke Quist, though their remit also extends to litigation. Versatility sets Shoko Leek apart: she is a staunch patent and trademark protector with followers in industries ranging from electronics to communications, software and medical devices. Jeffrey Sakoi is also hard to pigeonhole, but has an affinity for chemical matters, having been a patent attorney at a major chemical company."
