Sandersons - Staff - Tom

Tom graduated from the University of Oxford in 2006 with a first class MEng in Engineering Science. He then worked as an electronics engineer with QinetiQ for a year before training as a patent attorney at a large London-based firm of patent and trademark attorneys. He achieved qualification as a UK Chartered Patent Attorney and as a European Patent Attorney in 2011.

Experience

Tom’s main technical expertise lies in mechanical, electronics and software related inventions. He has been in the patent profession since 2007 and has experience in drafting patent applications, in prosecuting patent applications in the UK, in Europe and internationally, and in European patent oppositions. He also provides advice relating to registered and unregistered designs, patentability, freedom to operate, and assertion of IP rights.

Qualifications

  • MEng (Hons) Engineering Science, University of Oxford – 2006
  • UK Chartered Patent Attorney – 2011
  • European Patent Attorney – 2011

Outside Work

Tom hopes soon to have a life outside work that extends beyond wrangling the needs to two small boys. We wish him luck with that but feel it would be only polite to warn him now that he is never quite going to escape – the family taxi pickup location and time just changes!

After a few years away from the game (see above), Tom has also recently rediscovered his love of golf, but must now rediscover his ability to play! Tom can otherwise be found enjoying family camping trips, learning to sail off the coast of Mersea Island, or visiting family back in his home city of Worcester.
