Anthony comes from a background in both client-facing IP administration as head of Formalities for a previous private practice firm, and prior to that an in-house role in IP procurement, administration and licencing. Building on this broad wealth of knowledge and experience Anthony is now a part-qualified European Patent and Trade Mark Attorney, looking to qualify as a European Trade Mark Attorney in 2017.
Presently Anthony splits his time between managing Avidity’s extensive Formalities and Records Department and continuing his training as an Associate Attorney. In his Attorney role Anthony’s focus is Trade Marks and Branding, and is well placed to advise on filing and prosecution strategies, assessing and covering core geographical markets, and implementing processes and tools for the ongoing enforcement of those IP rights globally.
Having been responsible for the procurement and transfer of intellectual property assets on behalf of a variety of investment portfolios Anthony is well experienced in the assessment, valuation and sale of IP rights, and applies those same tools to assessing client’s proposed IP filings and acquisitions.
