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.
The extremely popular annual Appleyard Lees Velo is back for 2018!
This year, we’ve joined forces with our friends at BDO Accountancy and Business Advisors, to offer like-minded professionals the opportunity to take part in a networking cycling event in the stunning Yorkshire Dales.
Building on the success of last years’ event, the Velo promises spectacular views of the Yorkshire countryside, all the while raising money for a fantastic charity.
This year, all entry donations will be gifted to Help for Heroes, to support them in their mission to provide lifetime support for the Armed Forces Community and their families.
Help for Heroes aim to empower Veterans and Service Personnel to look beyond illness and injury. Every penny we raise will help Veterans and Service Personnel reach their potential, regain their purpose and have a positive impact on society.
