Experience

Richard has over 20 years experience in the patent profession, following his time at Oxford University during which he obtained his degree and doctorate in physics and worked as a post-doctoral research assistant in the field of superconductivity (studying both low and high temperature materials). His academic background includes final year modules in electronics and condensed matter physics, and years working as a demonstrator on the electronics practical course for physics undergraduates.

Richard leads a team providing European patent drafting and prosecution services to one of the world's largest mobile telecoms companies, obtaining granted patents at a rate of over two per day in this fast moving field.

Richard and his colleagues have pioneered the use of video conferencing for efficient, successful attendance at EPO Oral Proceedings before the examining division, typically attending around 100 OPs per year.

Richard also has extensive experience advising University and SME clients on IP strategy, and works closely with those clients, providing drafting and prosecution services in addition to support with invention harvesting, to build substantial, commercially-focused patent portfolios, for example in the field of printed and flexible electronics.
