Jennifer has a wealth of experience as a patent attorney, spending time as a coordinator of global IP portfolios, strategic advisor, EPO opposition specialist, and drafter and prosecutor of patent applications in the engineering and physics fields.
She is particularly strong in the fields of mechanical devices and subsea technology (e.g. pipelines, cable protection, vehicles, vessels), medical devices (e.g. wound dressings, vacuum therapy apparatus, retinal treatment devices, waste disposal) and apparatus incorporating aspects of physics or electrochemistry. She is also expanding her knowledge into the wind energy sector and renewables in general.
Jennifer appears frequently at the EPO in Munich and The Hague to attend opposition and appeal hearings. She enjoys a debate and believes that the scrutiny and detail of opposition proceedings is the best way to continually hone your patent skills.
Jennifer is also a member of the firm's Asia business development team as Japan coordinator, working to review and increase business with Japan and foster our relationship with Japanese firms. Having started her IP career at a Japanese patent firm, she gained invaluable insight into the way different businesses and clients operate, and an appreciation of cultural diversity.

"Jennifer Uno attracts effusive feedback: “Jenny knows our needs very well and surprises us by advancing on solutions for our IP matters at the soonest opportunity. She is always extremely easy to reach, will make time to know more about the company, and will not miss a small gap left in the prosecution of your files or in your new invention. Her creative disposition when it comes to ideas and solutions on how to accommodate our needs or demands are difficult to find elsewhere.”"
"Another persuasive EPO advocate is engineer Jennifer Uno, who can get her head around almost any mechanical or medical device; a stint at a patent attorney firm in Osaka gives her an edge when collaborating with Japanese clients."
