Our Client HUUB has been Chosen to Feature in an International Campaign Celebrating Great British Innovation

September 27, 2017

It’s been 400 years since the grant of English patent No.1; a monopoly for engraving maps of London and other cities, and to celebrate, the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and the government’s GREAT Britain Campaign are running the ‘GREAT for Imagination’ campaign.

The initiative is designed to highlight a wide range of companies that have developed significant intellectual property (IP) in Britain and is promoted on digital and outdoor media to 144 countries worldwide through the social media hashtag #greatforimagination.

We were delighted to learn that our client HUUB has been featured as one of the companies in the campaign for its scientifically developed triathlon wetsuits and kits. Designed to maximise performance and comfort, the company’s wetsuits are worn by some of the world’s top athletes including Team GB stars Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee who won gold and silver medals at the Rio 2016 Olympic Triathlon, and Paralympian athlete ‘Hurricane’ Hannah Cockroft MBE who won three gold medals at the Rio 2016 Paralympics as well as setting a new world record time in the Women's 400 metres T34 Final.

Our work with HUUB has been on obtaining patent and trade mark protection and it’s a relationship that goes back over five years. It’s a privilege for us to have one of our clients be featured in the campaign.

It’s also great recognition for our firm which has developed an excellent track record in supporting world class sports’ companies helping them to protect their valuable innovations and brands. Alongside HUUB, our client Peak UK which manufactures life jackets for elite athletes also achieved medal success at Rio 2016 including a gold medal for Joe Clarke in the Kayak K1 race.

We’re very proud to support such innovative clients who achieve success on a global scale. These companies recognise the importance of obtaining good IP protection and we’re fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them.
