Daniel is a partner in the firm’s electronics and computing group.
Daniel drafts and prosecutes UK and European patent applications in a wide range of technologies and works with patent attorneys around the world to manage the international prosecution of families of patent applications. He particularly enjoys the challenges involved with prosecuting related families of patent applications to obtain comprehensive protection for his client’s inventions in view of their commercial objectives. In particular, he has extensive experience prosecuting complex patent families in the fields of fuel cell systems and navigation technology, including primary responsibility for the drafting or prosecution of several hundred patent applications. Daniel works closely with the firm’s litigation team to enforce his client’s granted patent rights in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC) and Patents Court (High Court).
Daniel also prepares oppositions and third-party submissions on behalf of clients who wish to oppose the grant of a third party’s patent at the European Patent Office (EPO). Such action may clear the way for our clients to operate in a particular area, or otherwise improve their commercial position. Most of his experience in this area is in the medical technology or consumer product space.
Daniel joined Potter Clarkson in November 2010 and became a partner in 2019.
