Experience

Working primarily with private individuals, start-ups, SMEs and Universities, Rob has experience working across a wide range of technical areas and with clients from a variety of backgrounds. He is responsible for drafting and prosecuting UK, European and International patent applications and has particular experience in handling patent in the areas of medical devices, robotic vehicles, fluid pumping and control systems and construction technologies.

Rob is always interested to learn about new ideas, and particularly enjoys discussing how these can be developed into a commercial offering that will differentiate these new products and services from those that already exist.

Rob believes understanding what each client's business aims are and how their technology impacts this, is core to providing an IP strategy that is sustainable for the business in the long term.
