Toby Hopkin

 

Toby enjoys handling IP work in a wide range of technology sectors, including technologies ranging from the nanoscale to large-scale constructions.  Similarly, he works for clients ranging from single inventors and startups to large multinational companies.  The diversity of his work enables him to have a fresh perspective on his clients’ challenges and particularly helps him to develop strategies for smaller clients to build their IP portfolios.

Toby is experienced in drafting, filing and prosecuting patent applications at the European Patent Office and elsewhere.  He is also experienced in obtaining Registered Design protection in Europe and elsewhere and advising clients in relation to design matters.  He also routinely provides advice on freedom to operate and enforcement matters.  Based in London, Toby works for clients across northern Europe and is a regular visitor to the Nordic region.
