Malcolm Edis

Consultant Patent Attorney 

Three things you didn't know about Malcolm:

  • Once owned two E Type Jaguars - at the same time.  Sadly sold them both in the 1970s for slightly less than Malcolm paid for them! Malcolm is keen on tennis and used to umpire matches. 
  • Once, in France at Monte Carlo, he had to umpire a doubles match - in French - where one pair had the almost unpronounceable name combination of Nowicki and Niedzwiecki.  Malcolm must have had to call those names out about 50 times during the course of the match!
  • Has ridden motorbikes since he was twelve years old and has always been a bit of a speed freak.  Malcolm's first bike was a little disappointing, however.  It was a 98cc Excelsior two stroke with two gears and a top speed of 41 mph sitting upright and 45 "flat on the tank"!
