Edward brings a breadth of experience to Wynne-Jones IP having done part of his training in the drafting, filing and prosecution of patent applications in a wide range of technologies. Edward started his IP training in a large London-based firm with a focus on work relating to office technology, mass spectrometry, materials, vehicular technology and IT. His experience also includes expert support in advising clients on registered design protection which will prove to be invaluable as he transitions into working within the Wynne-Jones IP team as a qualified Patent Attorney.
Before joining the profession, Edward spent time studying Mandarin Chinese in China and can communicate with clients in this market. He also achieved a MEng degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge and a Postgraduate Certificate in Intellectual Property Law from Queen Mary, University of London.
“I am delighted to have been part of the Wynne-Jones IP Training Academy which supported me through an intense programme in my final months before qualifying. It was a fantastic opportunity to further my expertise in the IP sector and develop new skills. I now look forward to working with the knowledgeable team here at Wynne-Jones IP, continuing to carve out my career in IP law, as well as supporting next year’s Training Academy recruits.”
Wynne-Jones IP formally announced its Training Academy earlier this year, inspired by its forward-thinking Partners and team who believe that giving trainees hands-on experience alongside experts in its field of practice will encourage more to consider Intellectual Property as both a rewarding and interesting career. The overall objective is to recruit several trainees into the firm each year and enable them to become skilled IP attorneys, fluent in both IP law and business management. Despite Edward having qualified this summer, he will continue to be part of the internally developed programme which offers an ongoing comprehensive four to five-year training programme covering areas which include practice management and business development.
“We are thrilled that Edward is our first qualified Patent Attorney under the Wynne-Jones IP Training Academy”, added Vicki Strachan who leads the Training Academy. “He has proven to be an asset to the Wynne-Jones IP team and we hope his success will encourage a flow of future applicants who may not have considered a career in IP when they first began their degrees.”
