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.

We are excited to be the sponsors of the Manchester Data Science Summit, which will take place at the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester, on 23-24 March 2018.

Our partners at Cambridge Spark are bringing their international series of Data Science Summits to Manchester for the very first time!

This is a great opportunity for analysts, researchers and developers to network, develop new skills, and gain an insight into the exciting field of data science and AI.

The Summit provides an opportunity to learn from industry experts, attend inspiring keynotes, and participate in practical data science workshops covering Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Big Data Analysis in Python.

Partner, Julia Gwilt, will be speaking on the topic of patenting in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Andrew Fearnside, senior associate, and Andrew McKinlay and Howard Read, patent attorneys, from our Data Sciences & Computing team will also be in attendance.
