Senior Associate, Patent Attorney Southampton
Profile of Martin Bicker

I joined D Young & Co in 2015 after four years working for a German IP law firm based in Munich. I enjoy being able to utilise my hands-on experience in UK and European patent protection for our clients.

I am experienced in drafting and prosecuting patent applications over a wide range of technologies including electronic devices, process control systems, and medical devices.

During my physics degree at the University of Southampton, I was involved in a project exploring the formation of dark matter in the early stages of the universe for my master's thesis.
