MARK SUGDEN, PhD Physics
Working in the Advanced Engineering group
Since joining Withers & Rogers just three months ago, I've been involved in a wide variety of projects for an equally broad range of clients. I didn't expect this level of responsibility so early on in my career.
I can be working on more than 20 cases at any one given time, with about 10 new cases to look at every week. This means that I get plenty of variety in my day-to-day work. It also means that I'm constantly exposed to a diverse range of industries and companies, from large manufacturing companies to individual inventors.
One of the things I'm mostly proud of is the fact that I've already drafted two patent specifications relating to the automotive industry. This is quite an achievement for someone at my level.
The initial two week in-house training programme gave me an excellent insight into my role and what would be expected of me – and I'm very confident that the training and support here will provide me with a solid basis to become a successful Patent Attorney in the future.
