Patent Attorney Southampton
Profile of Arun Roy

I joined D Young & Co in 2011 after finishing my degree in Physics with Mathematics at the University of Southampton. I enjoy my job as a patent attorney because I get to work with lots of different technology, interact with different inventors and learn about what makes a new invention special.

My day-to-day work involves drafting new patent applications and prosecuting patent applications at the EPO, UKIPO and other patent offices. I am confident handling a wide range of electronic and software-related subject matter, including image processing, telecoms, medical devices, electronic payment systems, blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI). I have lots of experience presenting cases at Oral Proceedings at the EPO, mainly before the Examining Division but also before the Opposition Division and Board of Appeal. I was also given the opportunity to complete a secondment with the in-house patents team of one of our clients, which gave me a better understanding of the work in-house patent teams do and what they require from their external intellectual property advisers.

I am fortunate to have worked with clients of all sizes, from individual inventors to famous multinational companies. I take pride in listening carefully to clients’ needs and providing them with the best service I can.
