Wynne-Jones IP bolsters team with appointment of an experienced Patent & Trade Mark Attorney

Wynne-Jones IP has welcomed highly experienced Patent & Trade Mark Attorney, Martin Hyden, from the beginning of June to its Cheltenham-based Head Office.

Martin brings to the firm a wealth of both private practice and in-house legal expertise plus significant international experience, having worked in the USA, Japan, France, and Belgium, as well as the UK.   With more than thirty years experience as a Patent and Trade Mark Attorney he joins the Wynne-Jones patent team working alongside Partner, Danny Butler and Leading Partner, Ian Lambert.  Most recently Martin was a partner in the London office of a large US IP firm.  His years of experience in advising large corporations and individuals, as well as managing complex IP portfolios, combined with his experience as a member of the European Qualifying Examinations Committee, as an examiner for the Patent Examination Board, and as a tutor for patent attorney trainees will also be applied by him supporting the growing Wynne-Jones Training Academy.  Martin, who already lives in Cheltenham, will be based at the firm’s Head Office located in his home town.

Commenting on the appointment Ian Lambert said: “We are privileged to have a Attorney of Martin’s caliber joining our Patent team and although he will predominantly focus on these clients, his trade mark and design knowledge will undoubtedly also be an asset, as will his international expertise across many sectors of our client portfolio.  Additionally, as our Training Academy grows year on year we can already foresee his skills being a real asset to our trainees.”
