Essex-based patent and trade mark attorneys Sanderson & Co. are celebrating after one of their staff has newly qualified as a Chartered Patent and European Trade Mark attorney.
Chris Burnett has worked for Sanderson & Co. as a technical assistant since 2003 when he completed a Masters degree in the Management of Intellectual Property at Queen Mary, University of London.
The 28-year-old from Chelmsford, who has a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry from the University of Edinburgh, is also currently awaiting the results of examinations to qualify as a European Patent Attorney.
Chris deals with clients across a range of industries and works out of Sanderson & Co.’s Chelmsford and Colchester offices.
He said: “It’s very interesting work, much more enjoyable than lab work. It allows me to apply the knowledge gained during my degree to varied situations as well as furthering the knowledge I have picked working on a range of different technologies.
"After five years of working with Sanderson & Co., three of those years in which I’ve been taking exams, it is great to be able to achieve this qualification, not just for me but for the firm and our clients, too.”
