Partner, Patent Attorney Southampton
Profile of Robbie Berryman

In my job, every day is different. My background is in physics, electronics and computing, so I’m always seeing new innovations and interacting with expert engineers.

My client base is diverse, ranging from start-ups and SMEs to universities and tech giants. I’ve been working for ARM for over ten years now, drafting patent applications and managing the prosecution of applications around the world.

I’ve been at D Young & Co for ten years and I appreciate its supportive team environment. Over that time, I’ve massively expanded my experience and client base. Besides drafting hundreds of complex patent applications, I’ve also worked as a tutor on external training courses for candidates sitting the legal practice exams.
