Mathys & Squire trainees excel in latest exams

In what has been a particularly difficult year for all students across the world, with much uncertainty and logistical changes, we are delighted to announce a record number of exam success for trainees in the Mathys & Squire team.

Our congratulations go to Alex Elder, Peter Humby and Oliver Parish, who have all passed their UK Finals exams, and are now qualified patent attorneys.

In addition to our new cohort of associates, we would like to congratulate technical assistants Thomas Bosworth, Jessica Eastwood, Rachael Evans, Liam Gannon, Jonathan Israel, Joe O’Gorman, Conor McGuinness, Lionel Newton, Clare Roskell, Helen Springbett, Leonard Wright and Max Ziemann for passing various modules as part of their UK exams on their path to qualifying as patent attorneys.

A number of our technical assistants have also passed their pre-European Qualifying Examinations (EQEs); well done to Jessica Eastwood, Rachael Evans, Liam Gannon, Sally Gao, Joe O’Gorman, Clare Roskell, Helen Springbett and Max Ziemann.

Technical assistants Szymon Pancewicz, Emma Powell, Lewis Scholes, Angela Stephen and William Wathey have all passed their Queen Mary Post Graduate Certificate exams; the next step for these individuals will be to take their UK Finals exams to become qualified patent attorneys.

Partner Alan MacDougall, who heads up Mathys & Squire’s HR function, commented: “We would like to extend a huge congratulations to all these individuals who have worked so hard in the last year to achieve these outstanding results. These candidates have all excelled at a time when there has been such uncertainty in both work and personal lives; and on top of this, they have dealt with the technical aspects of sitting the new online examination platform – either from home or the office. It is truly a testament to their hard work and commitment to their studies in progressing their careers as patent attorneys. Nurturing and developing talent is one of Mathys & Squire’s core values, so it is with great pride that we announce news such as this.”
