Announcement : 


We are delighted to announce that Stratagem IPM Ltd has acquired Page Hargrave with effect from 1st May 2017, and will fully integrate the two businesses.


Page Hargrave was formed in 1991 by the merger of two specialist intellectual property firms, Page & Co. in Bristol (founded on work from the famous British Westinghouse engineering firm) and Hargrave & Company in London (based on acquired trade mark practices).  Owing to the complementary skills and expertise in the two firms, and their similar visions, the merger was a great success.

Stratagem’s mission is to deliver a strategically different intellectual property management service in order to build successful businesses, both with, and for its clients, and has grown to thirty four staff since it was founded in 1999.


Whilst Stratagem has the capability to cover all technologies including biotech/pharma, medtech, physics, engineering and electronics, and all forms of intellectual property advice and management of patents, designs, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, licensing, due diligence and commercialisation support, the merger with Page Hargrave will help step change the business. 


In addition to its UK-based clients, Page Hargrave has a wide geographic presence and long-term experience of assisting overseas corporations and professional firms with their intellectual property requirements in the UK and Europe. They bring to the combined business considerable experience of handling patent work involving electrical engineering and the physical sciences, and trade mark work globally.

We are confident that this very complementary merger will be to the benefit of Stratagem and Page Hargrave’s existing and new clients alike.

The Page Hargrave office in Bristol will be retained, complementing the Stratagem head office of the combined businesses in Cambridge. It is intended that the Welwyn Garden City office of Page Hargrave will be incorporated into the Cambridge head office over time. We anticipate that this merger will be just as successful as the merger of Page & Co. and Hargrave & Company 26 years ago, and are very excited about the increased capability this brings to Stratagem.
