I take on chemical and mechanical subject matter. When drafting, I believe it is important that I can fully understand the invention, by exchanging questions and answers, so that I can make sure you have the best scope of patent claim to suit your business needs.
I also have considerable experience leading patent and intellectual property departments in the pharmaceutical and consumer product industries, including 10 years as head of IP at Glaxo, so I know what industry looks for in a strong patent portfolio. I can help small companies and universities, even those with established relationships with external patent firms, to improve the commercial potential of their IP, and maybe save some money. I do that on a retainer basis, without an hourly fee, to steer research in the best direction to achieve patentable outcomes, and provide business with patent input to maximize licensing opportunities. I use the income to fund my company, Indigena Biodiversity, which develops natural products to benefit biodiversity-rich countries.
