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.
