Patent Attorney London
Profile of Szymon Pancewicz

I joined D Young & Co in 2022. I have a strong background in software and engineering, and am particularly interested in green energy. I enjoy applying this to my role, and getting to know my clients’ business so that I can assist them in obtaining IP protection that helps their business grow.

I worked at another leading IP firm for three years prior to joining D Young & Co, and specialise in software and electronics, particularly in the gaming industry. I work with both SMEs and large multinational businesses.

I have experience in patent drafting and prosecution, as well as intellectual property portfolio management, across a wide range of technical fields in Europe, the US and various other jurisdictions. I also have experience working in technology transfer, managing a large patent portfolio for a globally top-ranked university, and in registered designs.

Prior to entering the patent profession in 2019, I worked as a software engineer. I studied engineering (specialising in information and computer engineering) at the University of Cambridge, and received a distinction for my master’s project on simulation of amorphous silicon solar cell designs.
