The prospect of learning about and protecting cutting edge technology is what attracted Peter most to the world of IP.

Peter sees the biggest challenge for clients as keeping ahead of the competition in a world where advances are being made very quickly but patent offices are becoming less inclined to allow broad claims.

As a former scientist of molecular mechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis and vaccine development and animal vaccine development Peter is expertly placed to help clients within the life sciences sector. “Having the knowledge reduces the lag time in coming to terms with an invention and allows me to focus on how best to protect my clients technology”.
