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.
Our Leeds office is packed with fitness fanatics, so we thought we would put that to good use to raise money for Age UK. The team will be led by Chris Mason, a patent attorney in our chemistry & pharmaceutical team.
By entering the Abbey Dash Corporate Challenge 10k, our attorneys will be put through their paces to raise money to help beat loneliness. Unfortunately, more than 1.2 million older people are chronically lonely in the UK. We know that the money we raise will be going to a great cause and improving the lives of elderly people.
The team will make their way to Kirkstall Abbey and will finish at Leeds Town Hall.
