Lloyd Hoarton

Managing Partner

UK Chartered Patent Attorney
European Patent Attorney

I graduated in aerospace systems engineering at Southampton University. I handle patent and design prosecution work in diverse engineering fields including miniature precision motors, white goods, digital watermarking, social computing, cyber-security and nano-engineering whilst retaining an active involvement in encryption techniques, telecommunications, electronics and computer/software related inventions.

I manage patent and design litigation matters for my clients as well as conducting due diligence exercises on third party IP portfolios.  I delight in getting my clients the right form of protection for their innovations: be they football shirt designs, encryption techniques, gaming systems or aircraft seating.

I predominantly represent clients with UK originating work and European patent prosecution work as well as handling portfolios of non-European cases for national institutions. I regularly represent my clients in oral proceedings before the European Patent Office Examining Division, Opposition Division and Board of Appeal.
