Freddie joined IP Asset in April 2017 from Mathys & Squire LLP, having graduated from Oxford University in 2014 with a Masters in Engineering Science. He passed the Queen Mary foundation examinations in Intellectual Property Law, and the preliminary examination for the European qualifying examinations. He is now working towards full chartership as both a UK and European Patent Attorney.
Freddie has already worked in a number of different areas of IP Law, including drafting new patents from scratch after meeting clients, patent and design searching, attending and assisting with oral proceedings within the EPO, and infringement litigation including providing original research and instruction to our barrister. He has a particular interest in start-ups, both introducing them to the world of IP and also providing a cost-effective strategy for protecting their key ideas. Studying at Oxford provided Freddie with a strong academic and technical background within a diverse range of Engineering topics, before he eventually specialised in both Civil and Biomedical Engineering. His Masters project involved developing a new transport system for chemotherapeutic drugs using liposomes and carbon nanoparticles.
Freddie also enjoys organising and participating in firm-wide social and sporting events, and was the Sports Captain for The Informals which represents all trainee Patent Attorneys in the UK. He also enjoys backing slightly odd-sounding Kickstarter projects, playing the piano, and tending to his cat’s every whim.
