2021 promotions and appointments

In a year unlike any other for so many of us in the UK, Germany and around the world, it gives us great pleasure to share news of our 2021 promotions and in so doing, to recognise the hard work and skills of our team. We are very proud of our staff across all three offices, who continue to work with great attentiveness and enthusiasm, despite the challenges we may have all have faced over the past 12 months.

Our promotions this year stretch across all of our service areas from trade marks to patents, and over a broad range of specialist technical areas within our biotechnology, chemistry, pharmaceuticals and electronics, engineering and IT teams.

Congratulations to patent attorneys Sophie Slater, Patrick Scott, Martin Bicker and Rechtsanwältin Yvonne Stone who have been appointed as Senior Associates.

Congratulations also to patent attorneys Robert Kelly, Alice Stuart-Grumbar, Ryan Lacey and trade mark attorney Natasha O’Shea who are now Associates, and to newly qualified attorneys David Al-Khalili and Joseph Flood. Also our thanks and best wishes to newly appointed Paralegals Megan Lever and Demi Bale and Senior IP Support Service Administrators Chris Sugden and Matthew McPeake.
