As a graduate from Nottingham University, Paul joined GEC as an engineer working on the production and development of a number of electro-optical imaging devices.

Paul is a Chartered Patent Attorney and European Patent Attorney. He is experienced in drafting and prosecuting patents for a wide variety of technologies, in the fields of physics, mechanical devices and electromechanical devices.

Born in Sheffield, one of Paul’s favourite inventions is stainless steel. “This material is so widely used and probably irreplaceable in today’s world. The invention’s story started in 1913 with one Sheffielder, Harry Brierley, and continued with another Sheffielder, W H Hatfield, who developed the 18/8 stainless steel still made today.”
