Patent and Trade Marks Attorney
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.
