Dan Rusby-Gale


UK Chartered Patent Attorney
European Patent Attorney

I joined Forresters in 2003 after graduating from Bristol University with a Masters degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

I draft and prosecute UK, European and international patent applications. I also coordinate patent protection and filing strategies in other countries around the world. I am actively involved in examination, appeal and opposition hearings at the European Patent Office.

I assist companies and solo inventors in obtaining patent protection for their inventions. My work covers a wide range of technical fields including telecommunications, electronics, computer software, mechanical devices, automotive and bicycle technologies, medical devices and clean/green energy technologies.

I qualified as a Patent Attorney Litigator in 2014 with a certificate in IP litigation and advocacy from Nottingham Trent University.  Since then I have conducted patent litigation in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court and advised on litigation in the High Court.

I am also experienced in filing and prosecuting European Community registered design applications, as well as developing filing strategies to maximise the scope of registered design protection.

In my spare time I enjoy cycling, hiking, brewing beer, digital photography and experimenting with gadgets and technology.
