Student member of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA)
Durham University, MPhys (Hons)
Currently attending the Intellectual Property Law Postgraduate Certificate at Queen Mary, University of London.
Tom joined Maschio & Soames in 2019 after completing an integrated master’s degree in physics at Durham University and since then has gained extensive experience in the drafting and prosecution of both European and GB patent applications. He particularly enjoys prosecution work to get patents granted and has worked on cases ranging from spacecraft fuel tanks to medical devices such as staplers, imaging devices and virtual reality set-ups.
During his studies at Durham, he developed an interest in cosmology and spent his final year researching the fine-tuning of cosmological parameters through simulating the evolution of the Universe.
In his spare time, Tom enjoys playing badminton and competing in tournaments (injuries permitting) and going on runs and cycle rides through the countryside.
