Two of our newly-promoted Associates are celebrating after passing their final exams to qualify as UK Patent Attorneys.

Ian Duncan and Jack Dean who are based in our Birmingham office successfully passed their papers in Advanced IP law and practice, drafting of specifications, amendment of specifications,  and infringement and validity.

Also in the Birmingham office, Olivia Wang and Ben Shepherd are now part-qualified UK Patent Attorneys having passed their international patent law, and trade mark law papers.

London trainees Matthew Holt and Lara Weaver passed their foundation papers in UK patent law, English law, design and copyright law. Nikita Meek passed his finals exam in infringement and validity.

Managing partner Matt Shaw said: “This is another set of excellent results for our trainees and testament to their hard work in preparing for their exams. On behalf of everyone at Forresters I’d like to congratulate all our trainees and in particular, our newly-qualified UK Patent Attorneys, Ian and Jack.”
