Mathys & Squire at the Cambridge Information & Intellectual Property Meeting

On Wednesday July 11th 2018, Mathys & Squire Partner, Jeremy Smith, attended the third annual Cambridge Information and Intellectual Property Meeting (CIIPM) at Homerton College.

Founded in 2015 by Jane List of Extract Information and Stuart Newbold of Patent Search & Information Management, CIIPM is a platform for IP knowledge sharing.

Talks ranged from regulatory updates, legal insights and risk mitigation through to licensing, valuation and insurance and as such, the day was a great opportunity for those looking to make legal and commercial decisions with their IP in mind.

As an experienced patent attorney specialising in the protection of electronics, software and telecoms related inventions – and as a named inventor on a number of semiconductor device related patents – Jeremy has long since been an active part of the IP community both in Cambridge and elsewhere.

He noted that, “the event offered an opportunity to both share with other professionals involved in many aspects of IP protection and commercialisation, and learn from speakers with an interesting and varied mix of experience in the IP sector”.

Jeremy has a first class honours degree in electronic and integrated circuit engineering from the University of Liverpool. Jeremy works across all areas of patent practice including: the preparation, filing and prosecution of patent applications before patent offices throughout the world; opposition both in Europe and elsewhere; due diligence activities; and litigation in the UK and elsewhere.
