“IP is recognised as an important asset, but that doesn’t necessarily translate to knowing how to use IP commercially.”

Malcolm educates clients as to what can and cannot be achieved with IP and stresses that communicating effectively and clearly with inventors is key.

Malcolm has a broad medical research background and deep understanding of how universities, research institutes and small start-up biotech companies operate. That knowledge allows Malcolm to tailor advice and address issues that may not have been considered at the onset.
