Mathys Squire has arrived in Oxfordshire

Published on: 20/02/2019

Meet Vicki Strachan from Mathys & Squire:

Vicki Strachan tells us about Mathys & Squire’s move to Milton Park and the success of their opening event hosted at the Innovation Centre.

“On a sunny Thursday morning in February, we hosted our official launch party at the Milton Park Innovation Centre.

When the (enormous) breakfast baps had been cleared away, and the coffee pots drained, our guests left to continue their working day, many commenting on what a brilliant networking event our launch had been. Whilst it was genuinely intended to introduce ourselves and our firm, as well as offering early morning sustenance to our new neighbours, it actually became a hive of business activity between newly-introduced individuals from all different types of businesses and organisations.

Having endlessly Googled ‘How to be a good host at a business event’, I found that just about all the literature advises you to have the right team with you, and in this case, I believe that was the key factor in the success of the event. 

The Oxfordshire team, made up of myself (Vicki Strachan), Grace Mason-Jarrett, Rhianna Faye, Peter Mansfield and Sally Ball, as well as Alex Tame from our sister firm Coller IP, had worked tirelessly leading up to the launch party to ensure that all of our clients and contacts were invited. Also on the day, we were also joined by a number of our colleagues from our other offices around the country and together, we ensured that those who attended were made welcome and maximised their time at the event.

As a result of our combined efforts, a large number of business cards were exchanged and several people were still deep in conversation at the end of the party. This just demonstrates that as a firm, we really mean it when we say we “take a collaborative approach” to our work, and I was never more proud to be a part of the Oxfordshire and wider Mathys & Squire team.”

Mathys & Squire have recently moved to Milton Park and joined the Innovation Centre family.

Vicki continues: “One of the reasons we are so excited about opening our Oxfordshire office is the vast amount of research and development that is going on in this region and the huge emphasis here on start-ups and SMEs. It can be so important for smaller businesses, especially, to have the right intellectual property strategy in place from the earliest possible stages, and the collaborative approach we favour, is key to formulating an IP strategy that grows and develops with the business. On top of that, with Alex Tame heading up Coller IP, who is based in our Oxfordshire office, we can offer that much needed complementary strategic IP management advisory and IP valuation services at the right time.

We are thrilled to have arrived at Milton Park business park, Oxfordshire and look forward to meeting many of you over the coming months.”
