UK, Irish and European Patent Attorney, European Design Attorney
At the time of writing, James Ward has over fifteen years of experience in handling opposition and appeal cases for both patentees and opponents. As opponent, over 80% of the cases in which he has acted have resulted in revocation of the patent, and none of the patents has been maintained as granted. In James’ most successful year, all ten of the inter partes hearings at the EPO resulted in the revocation of the patents he was opposing.
The IAM Patent 1000, 2019, said about James: “James Ward maintains a formidable practice from the firm’s Munich office. His acuity across a diverse range of electronics and communications technologies wins him pan-European renown”.
