Technical Assistant London
Profile of Robert Kelly

I joined D Young & Co in 2018 and have a strong background in physics and mechanics. I enjoy assisting clients in building a strong IP portfolio tailored to their requirements.

Prior to entering the IP profession, I completed a PhD at the University of Warwick using solid-state NMR to investigate biological structures. I worked for 3 years at another leading IP firm before joining D Young & Co and specialise in mechanical devices. I have worked for a range of clients ranging from SMEs to multinationals.

I have experience in patent drafting and prosecution in the UK, Europe and internationally as well as portfolio analysis.
