He has also had experience in drafting patent applications in the FinTech and Business Methods areas, primarily for filing in the US.

Jeff has managed extensive patent portfolios across the world, and so has gained significant non-European patent prosecution experience in countries including: USA; China; Japan; Australia; Canada; India; Taiwan; Indonesia; Malaysia. As such, Jeff provides a one-stop-shop for clients without any in house IP function.

Jeff's established clients include SMEs in Computer Security/Software and MEMs based biomedical/industrial sensors, and global corporations in the computing, telecommunications and test and measurement equipment areas. As such, Jeff has managed patent portfolios for start-ups and Fortune 500 US corporations alike.

Overall Jeff is a technologically excellent and proactive advisor that helps clients to navigate their IP needs with a strong emphasis on the commercial reality of their businesses, whilst always mindful of the legal issues at hand.
