Description: Geoff has 10 years of experience as a patent attorney working at Boult Wade Tennant, one of the top patent and trademark firms in the UK.

He has successfully defended one of Herman Miller's patents on their "Aeron" office chair during a European Patent Office opposition and an Amazon patent during a UK Patent Office Opinion procedure.
