Rupert Knights

Partner

Dolleymores 

As a partner at Dollymores in the UK, I advise on all aspects of obtaining patent rights, from initial meetings with inventors, through drafting, filing, and prosecuting patent applications, to managing portfolios of patents and patent applications in the UK and internationally. I represent clients, where necessary, in oral proceedings before the European Patent Office, and have extensive experience before the opposition divisions and appeal boards of the European Patent Office.

I advise on issues related to freedom-to-operate, validity of patent rights, patentability of inventions, and infringement of patent rights.

I also advise on designs and copyright and can assist in obtaining design protection in the UK and internationally.
