Since joining HGF in 2010, much of Daniel’s work has concerned the drafting and prosecuting of patent applications across a broad spectrum of chemical sciences, but particularly in the fields of pharmaceuticals, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, graphene and other 2D materials, chemical engineering, carbon capture, dyes, agrochemicals, and resins for use in 3D printers. Daniel also has experience in advising on freedom to operate issues.
Daniel has formulated complex IP strategies for several award winning UK pharmaceutical companies.
He has worked extensively with a number of UK Russell Group universities for whom he has provided patentability opinions and drafted and prosecuted to grant worldwide patent applications in a range of technically complex chemistry related subject matters.
