Experience

Simon began his patent career in private practice before joining the in-house department of a FTSE 100 multinational chemical company in 2012. As an in-house attorney, Simon was responsible for the patent portfolios of a contentious product area in the automotive catalysts sector. He has considerable experience in handling oppositions and appeals at the European Patent Office, and providing advice on patent validity and freedom-to-operate.

Simon returned to private practice in 2018 when he joined the London office of HGF. He draws on both his private practice and in-house experience to provide commercially-focused advice to his clients in relation to all patent matters.
