Kevin Ashby

Patent and Trademark Attorney

Key Focus:

  • Patents


Patent attorney Kevin Ashby has a background in chemical engineering. This has equipped him to handle patented technology in specialist areas as diverse as animal nutrition (pet food compositions) and the electronic properties of diamonds when working in-house for world leaders in those industries.

Kevin now works independently, handling patenting projects from “apps” to clothing. His experiences over 25 years in patenting have led him to observe that the simplest concepts often turn into the most powerful patents, and that everyone has it in them to be an inventor. “If you have improved on something by proposing a new technical solution to a problem, then you should have the right to enjoy the fruits of your creativity in making that improvement.”

Having practiced his craft in 4 continents already, Kevin appreciates the requirements for preparing a patent specification that will meet international standards.

I highly recommend LegalVision to any business - small or large - looking for a team of professionals that take genuine care and place importance not only on the professional output of their product, but on providing an exceptional customer experience and focus on relationship management that is second to none.

Without the help of Ursula and LegalVision, there is no way that we could have launched the site with any kind of confidence. In our case, we’re dealing with copyright law and complex music licensing requirements so it’s always prudent to seek good legal advice. We are very happy with the outcome of the legal documents, most of which are proudly displayed on our website.
