Patent Attorney London
Profile of Ben Hunter

I joined the D Young & Co patent team in 2016 and have a strong technical background in the fields of engineering, IT and physics.

I have experience in the prosecution of UK, European and foreign patent applications in a broad range of technologies for a variety of clients, including multinational corporations, SMEs and academic institutions.
