Jeremy Smith

Senior Associate

Jeremy has over ten years’ experience at Kilburn & Strode in the drafting and prosecution of applications at the European Patent Office (EPO) and the UK Intellectual Property Office. From early in his career, he has been involved in high-profile oppositions and appeals at the EPO, including a successful opposition of patent claims that had previously been upheld as valid by the Court of Appeal in England (involving the same prior art). He works directly with a variety of clients from start-ups to large corporations. A significant proportion of his practice involves prosecuting and defending US-drafted applications and patents at the EPO. Jeremy regularly gives lectures for the American Intellectual Property Law Association and directly advises clients in the US on how to achieve success at the EPO. His physics degree gives him a broad base from which to specialise in various technical fields based on the needs of his clients. He has co-ordinated a worldwide patent filing strategy in the smart card field covering over 90 countries, and his patent advice has helped an SME client to achieve success on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den programme for entrepreneurs seeking investment capital.
