Patent Attorney London
Profile of Jerome Luchesa Smith

I joined D Young & Co in 2021, having recently qualified as a patent attorney in the UK and Europe.

I am adept in a broad range of intellectual property matters, including the drafting and prosecution of patent applications, offensive and defensive opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office, Board of Appeal proceedings, the prosecution of supplementary protection certifications (SPCs), and due diligence / freedom to operate work.

My main area of specialism is pharmaceuticals, especially small molecule drugs; their production, uses and forms. I also have experience working on biologics, inorganic chemistry and its applications, analytic techniques in chemistry, chemical process engineering, petrochemical engineering, medical equipment, and consumer products.
