About Us

Rouse was established in the UK in 1990, and is recognised as a global Intellectual Property leader operating as a closely integrated network with more than 700 people working out of 16 offices in 12 jurisdictions.

We focus exclusively on IP, from strategic consulting, patents and trade marks through to domain names, copyright, designs and geographical indications. And we’re experts in providing services for each stage of their life cycle.

We have a deep understanding of all jurisdictions around the world and a strong focus on more challenging markets such as Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Russia. Most importantly, we’re passionate about IP and enjoy working with clients who share that passion. We put clients at the heart of our business and build long standing relationships. From large multinationals that want our scale, quality and professionalism, to start ups that value our entrepreneurial spirit, the companies we work with come from a broad range of sectors with diverse business interests and needs.

The Rouse Difference

Rouse prides itself on its quality and professionalism, but we have also always dared to be different. We don’t believe that all firms should be the same. That’s why we’ll always challenge the traditional way of doing things if we think another way is better.

It also means we don’t just advise on the law - in many countries we help define and shape it. We have a practical, pragmatic and “unstuffy” approach, with teams of professionals who work closely together across functions and geographical borders in a non-hierarchical, creative and results-oriented environment.

Rouse people are full of energy and enthusiasm. We are passionate about IP, our business and our people, and we genuinely enjoy what we do. We believe that having fun provides a happier, more productive working environment.

The Rouse Network

“International reach, local expertise”

Whatever your needs, in whatever country, we have either an established Rouse office or a long standing relationship with a local firm.

All our offices have both local and international experts that have bilingual capability. Where we don’t have an office we have a relationship with a local firm that we believe offers the best service for our clients and is the best fit for the Rouse culture and and the best service for our clients. Working with Rouse internationally means you can have one point of contact as well as a team of people around the world supporting you in the necessary jurisdictions.

The Rouse Network consists of local subsidiaries of Rouse International Limited and closely aligned but independent firms which work seamlessly together on engagements. Which elements of work are done by which entity depends entirely on the country in which work is carried out, in compliance with relevant legal and regulatory provisions.

Rouse Connect

Since Rouse was founded back in 1990, many wonderful people have come through our doors. We are very lucky that so many have remained in contact with the firm and become good friends and also clients. We have arranged occasional informal gatherings in the past, but have now created our version of the traditional firm alumni programme.

Called RouseConnect, its aims are to build and maintain a community of IP professionals who have all passed through Rouse at some point and hopefully shared many of our ideals. Many of our colleagues have gone on to great things – in-house, academia, to other great firms as well as into other fields. We want to keep in touch with everyone but also to help you all keep in touch with each other.

We have created a group on LinkedIn, which you can access and join here. We organise periodic get-togethers at IP events which many of you attend.
