Position

David Wraige is a special counsel in the Cooley’s London office and focuses on the drafting and prosecution of patent applications. He also has a wealth of experience in European Patent Office opposition proceedings. He has attended numerous hearings at the EPO for examination and opposition cases (both at first instance and appeal) as well as at the UK’s Intellectual Property Office.

David also conducts due diligence investigations to support asset transfers and advises on matters of infringement and validity, including freedom-to-operate investigations.

Although his practice has a particular emphasis on medical devices, he has advised clients on all aspects of patents in the engineering, electronics and software fields, including semiconductor processing, microelectromechanical devices, analogue and digital electronic circuits, cash handling, relational databases and outdoor advertising.

Career

Before becoming a patent attorney, David gained industrial experience working as an engineer in the defence, digital media and payment industries. He moved into patents in 2000, working for other major London firms before joining Cooley in 2015. He is a European patent attorney and a chartered patent attorney, as well as an EUIPO professional representative.
