Information Specialist Southampton
Profile of Hazel Barton

As the Information Specialist at D Young & Co, I provide patent information searching services, including patent status checks and competitor monitoring.

I undertake the retrieval and recording of patent and non-patent literature relevant to patent cases. This information is used to prepare documents such as information disclosure statements which are submitted to meet the duty of disclosure requirements of national patent offices.

Before joining D Young & Co in 2007, I have experience of providing IP and information services for an international manufacturing organisation.
