Over his more than 25 years in the profession, Peter has worked with companies and organisations spanning a wide range of physics based technologies. He has particular experience of the telecoms sector, and has knowledge of a range of 3GPP technologies. Another particular area of expertise is semiconductors, where Peter has experience of handling inventions relating to chip architectures, MEMS, semiconductor materials, CMOS manufacturing processes and packaging. A recent interest is how hardware is evolving to support AI technology. More widely, Peter handles patent matters in the fields of Fintech, aerospace, engineering & automotive, sports and medical devices.
 
Before entering the patent profession, Peter completed a Graduate Diploma in Law, and his patent practice has always involved handling wider legal issues surrounding IP. He frequently advises on enforcement, licencing, transactional, freedom-to-operate and revocation issues relating to patents. He has an enviable success rate in oppositions and appeals before the EPO.
 
Peter ran his own firm for a number of years, which he grew to a significant size before amalgamating the practice into a larger firm. This business experience helps him identify with clients that are seeking to scale their own enterprises and innovations, as well as in-house counsel looking to take account of broad commercial pressures when managing their IP.
 
Peter is also a very experienced trainer and mentor, and is involved with the running of the final examinations for UK patent attorneys and delivering training courses for candidates.
