Dr Ryan Mitchell
Trainee Patent Attorney

Office Location: London
My background is in Life Sciences and, prior to starting my career in intellectual property, I held a Research Assistant position within Imperial College London’s Department of Medicine. Whilst holding this position, I also completed a PhD looking into the effects of particular gene variants on the risk of inheriting Type 2 Diabetes.
I joined Forresters in 2016 and have been involved in many aspects of patent work, including prosecuting UK, European and International patent applications across a range of technical fields; assisting in oral proceedings before the European Patent Office Examining and Opposition Divisions and assisting clients in obtaining patent term extensions in the form of Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs) throughout the EU.
In my spare time, I enjoy running and ran my first half marathon in 2019 with the (vague) plan of doing more in the future – I’m a sucker for a medal! I also enjoy stand-up comedy, eating out and listening to podcasts.
