Work Department

Daniel,  is a Chartered Patent Attorney and European Patent Attorney in the Chemical and Materials Group.




Daniel has extensive experience in planning and handling large freedom-to-operate projects and shares responsibility for managing a large portfolio of on-going freedom-to-operate matters. These cover a wide range of subject-matter, primarily in the sphere of food technology, and a number of international jurisdictions. Over the last few years Daniel has also presented biannually at international IP conferences to share his experience and advice on best practice in approaching freedom-tooperate projects. In addition, Daniel often represents his clients at the European Patent Office in Opposition and Appeal hearings, both to clear the way for new product launches and development and to defend his client’s Patents, with a strong track record.

Daniel has an active drafting practice, coordinating invention-spotting meetings with clients and handling numerous, sometimes urgent, complex drafts. These are always delivered with the client’s commercial strategy, timing and budget requirements in mind.

Daniel’s technical background is in chemistry, particularly inorganic and materials chemistry. This background has developed into a particular expertise in the field of food science: primarily “Coffee and Biscuit inventions”. However, Daniel is practically minded with a keen personal interest in DIY and construction work, which has helped with the drafting of applications which often straddle the borders between chemistry and engineering, such as stencil printing and brake disc inventions.

While he extensively advises on food technology, he has prosecuted cases for a wide range of companies over an even wider spectrum of topics, from photolithography to aeroplane ducting and from the treatment of nuclear waste to veterinary medicaments.
