Geordie Oldfield likes cycling, scooting, nanoparticles and most things French.
“I like the diversity of IP: analysing the detailed reasoning in a court judgement one day and immersing myself in a formulation chemistry problem the next, or perhaps applying one to the other on the same day”.
I AM: analytical and fond of an argument
Title: Patent and Trade Marks Attorney, Solicitor
Qualifications: Bachelor of Science (Honours) (Chemistry and Nanotechnology), Bachelor of Laws, Master of Laws, Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice
I was interested in IP from a young age. My neighbour was a patent attorney and, for a period of time, worked from a home office. I remember wandering through his office and seeing prototypes and samples, which fascinated me. Then at university I became interested in nanotechnology and law and it seemed fairly clear which direction I was headed in. My honours thesis was on the Synthesis and Optoelectronics of Tin Dioxide Encapsulated Gold Nanoparticles.
My patent practice focuses mainly on the prosecution of applications relating to small molecules and formulations for pharmaceutical use, nanoparticles, agrochemicals, and general chemicals. I also enjoy registering trade marks, and helping clients to keep an eye on their competitors’ portfolios.
After working in Paris for a pharmaceutical company, I have an interest in the management of pharmaceutical patents and European patent law.Email Geordie >
