Craig has considerable experience in drafting and prosecuting patent specifications for inventions in the nanotechnology sector, including electrical storage cells, graphene applications, environmental sensors, user interfaces and wearable electronics.
Following his PhD - which involved the fabrication of thin film magnetic samples as potential storage “bits” using electron beam lithography, and analysis of their magnetic switching behaviour using Lorentz transmission electron microscopy - Craig entered the patent profession in 2007.
He joined Potter Clarkson in 2009 and became a partner in 2018.
Craig Brownlie is our main point of contact. He has consistently demonstrated that not only does he know our sector and our portfolio well, but has provided advice with the right level of pragmatic oversight to allow us to make proceed/halt decisions on research, patent applications and scope of portfolio."
