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 trade mark is a legal shield which underpins a successful brand. It identifies your business, and carries your unique message to the market. It can protect a domain name and prevent brand theft, and brand encroachment. It can become enormously valuable, both to your ongoing business and as an asset on the balance sheet.
We have a strong and successful team of trade mark professionals, who work with clients in all business sectors – including FMCG, media, financial services, IT, life sciences and engineering. Our team includes expert trade mark attorneys, solicitors and paralegals.
Our trade mark attorneys have much more to offer than superior legal skills. Their communication skills – the ability to listen, analyse, explain and persuade – are crucial for the best work. Their commercial skills allow them to understand your business and advise you in a long-term strategic way.
Our trade mark professionals are experts in securing trade mark rights. We also work with our clients in many other ways.
Our highly dedicated and experienced team of attorneys combine a broad range of legal and technical expertise with real-world commercial insight.
