Highlights:

  • Managing the worldwide patent and design portfolio for a top UK manufacturer of road safety barriers
  • Successfully restoring one UK patent that lapsed, even though the statutory limit for doing so had passed, and another where specific instructions were received not to renew it
  • Preparing an IP due diligence report for an AIM listing for a large UK manufacturer of CO2/smoke detectors, coordinating sharing information between the client and other legal parties, resolving various ownership issues unearthed as a result of my research, but still delivering the report on time and within budget
  • Setting up and running the firm’s designs and copyright group – one of the largest groups dedicated to designs and copyright in the UK
  • Serving as Principal examiner for the design and copyright UK Foundation Certificate (FC) qualifying examination, and chief examiner of the Patent Examination Board overseeing the setting and marking of all FC examinations

“Thank you, for being so good at your job, at the art of patent writing. Thank you for being loyal and dedicated and for all those last minute deadlines for more than a decade. I will, without hesitation, recommend you to anyone who requires an excellent patent attorney.”
