UK and European Patent Attorney
George is an experienced EPO oppositions attorney; his opposition work complements his patent prosecution work for major industrial companies as a leading specialist engineering attorney. Recognised in the Legal 500, George is particularly adept at handling technically complex matters, often conducting and drawing on in-depth research to support arguments in oppositions.
At the time of writing, more than 70% of his cases as patentee were maintained as granted (none revoked), whilst as opponent all of his cases have resulted in revocation or amendment.
George works closely with businesses to develop their IP strategy and portfolios, and maintains this strategic focus in the context of EPO oppositions, often advising on negotiated outcomes.
