Ean is a Partner in our Electronics & Software team, based in our Manchester office. He has a particular interest in telecoms, having spent the first few years in the profession working in-house for Nokia. He regularly handles subject matter ranging from RADAR systems, signal processing and digital systems to pipe couplings, medical devices and production equipment.
Ean jointly heads our Education sector team and works for a range of clients, including Universities (in the UK and abroad), global corporations and SMEs, operating in and around the Manchester area. He particularly enjoys working with up and coming companies, including spin-outs, helping them to identify and protect their intellectual property. He has experience of hearings before the UK and European Patent Office and frequently advises clients on contentious issues where their rights may be infringed or where they are accused of infringing the rights of others.
Before entering the patent profession, Ean spent several years working as a design engineer for Marconi and Motorola. This real-life commercial experience was invaluable and gives Ean an insight into some of the challenges faced by clients.
Ean was also mentioned in Managing Intellectual Property’s IP Stars guide in 2017 and described as a “problem solver” by a client.
A highly responsive team that provides in-depth analysis of issues presented in patent prosecution and rational approaches to addressing them.
Sought after by multinationals and growth stage businesses for advice on all aspects of rights clearance, filing, protection and strategy.
Their professionalism and knowledge are outstanding and we wouldn't trust anyone else to be as thorough.
Work is of an exceptional standard - nothing needs to be amended or tweaked.
The team is really thoughtful and does excellent research; it also responds rapidly to any instructions.
