Exam Success for Mathys & Squire Trainees

Mathys & Squire is delighted to announce a number of recent exam successes.

Nadège Beynon and Sam Giles are now qualified patent attorneys and Andrea Hadfield is a dual qualified patent attorney, having all passed their last UK Finals exams. Technical assistants Michael Charlton, Sally Gao, Juliana Murray, Dean Houston, Lionel Newton, Daniel Goldberg, Grace Mason-Jarrett and Amy Nick are also on their way to becoming qualified attorneys after passing some of their UK exams.

Seven of the firm’s technical assistants - Clare Collins, Dylan Morgan, Oliver Parish, Bethany Harriss, Alex Elder, Peter Humby and Leo Wright - passed their Queen Mary Post Graduate Certificate exams, which cover modules in trade marks, copyright and designs, plus a brief introduction to the fundamentals of law and professional ethics. The next step for these candidates will now be to take their UK Finals exams to become qualified patent attorneys.

Caroline Warren, a Mathys & Squire partner who leads on training and development, commented: “We are very proud to announce such excellent exam results, which are testament to these individuals’ hard work and dedication to their studies. As a firm, we offer an extensive training programme and professional development opportunities, with a focus on nurturing the talent of each of our trainees, so it is rewarding to see these results which will help these individuals progress to the next step in their career paths. Congratulations to all!”

Further congratulations go to Mathys & Squire secretaries Danielle Hanson, Donna Egan, Hanna Tiyamiyu and Yiemun Ng, patent administrator Liddy Chen and renewals clerk Summer Asim, who all passed the Patent Administrators Course.
