Ian Lambert Patent Attorney

Three things you didn't know about Ian:

  • Ian used to play chess to County level, and this may be where his interest in strategic thinking started.
  • He is also an increasingly heavy and slow club (Evesham Wheelers) cyclist.
  • Ian is a great believer in the positive benefits of day-dreaming ... just not all of the time.



Dr Ian Lambert is a Patent Attorney with 30 years' experience. Ian handles a wide range of technology including chemistry, chemical physics, sensors, mass-spectrometry, instrumentation, textiles, laser based inventions, life sciences, medical devices and medical physics, materials, nanotechnology, plasma etching and semiconductors. He also has experience in registered designs and unregistered design right (UDR).

He acts for a wide range of clients including multinationals, SMEs and universities. Ian has represented clients at Opposition and Appeal hearings before the European Patent Office. He also has experience of US Inter Partes Review (IPR) and Post-Grant Review (PGR) patent revocation procedures. Ian is experienced in IP portfolio management and in Board level IP planning and strategy.

Ian is one of the architects of Wynne-Jones IP’s dramatic growth in recent years, making contributions in areas such as business strategy, entrepreneurship, growth management and business innovation.

Ian is the Chairman of the Board of Shareholders of AIPEX BV, a unique Pan-European IP law firm that Wynne-Jones IP has co-founded.

Ian undertook postdoctoral research at the University of Bristol after obtaining a PhD in chemical physics. This gave him hands-on experience in technical fields such as high resolution spectroscopy and molecular dynamics, synchrotron radiation, time-of-flight mass spectroscopy and spectrometry, and laser analysis of molecules. Ian is a co-author of over twenty peer-reviewed papers relating to this research.

Ian regularly travels to the US and South East Asia on business, an experience he enjoys very much. He acts as representative patent attorney for Wynne-Jones IP on trips to SE Asia.
