“Will is a genuine asset to my team and has the potential to be a great patent attorney. He is quick to take on board new ideas and assimilates information effectively and thoroughly. He approaches problems in a logical and ‘can do’ manner and seems to thrive on the challenge and variety that comes with the role of an IP advisor. I find him both dependable and a pleasure to work with.”
