Highlights:

  • Helping to prepare the defence against Opposition Proceedings at the European Patent Office which resulted in the successful maintenance of an important patent for the client
  • Passing the first two qualifying examinations for the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys after only three months in the profession
  • Obtaining grant of a patent following particularly troublesome examination. The submitted arguments successfully overcame substantial objections without the surrender of any scope of protection

“Calum has an excellent grasp of engineering principles and has demonstrated a natural flair for the legal aspects of the job. He has already built up a lot of experience analysing search reports and assisting in the drafting of numerous patents both for UK clients and overseas. Definitely an IP star of the future, and it’s great to have him on my team. Not so good at hockey though.”
