POF welcomes a new staff member to our Sydney office – Dr Jon Wright

POF would like to extend a warm welcome to our new patent and trade marks attorney, Dr Jon Wright, who joined our Sydney office in June 2015. Jon brings invaluable international and local IP-related experience to POF. His experience extends to seven years scientific research work in Japan, intellectual property management in the UK, and broad-ranging patent and trade marks attorney experience in both Sydney and Melbourne.

Jon has a broad range of expertise across a number of major technical fields including chemistry, medical devices, mechanical engineering, software and business methods. Jon also specialises in inkjet printing technology, specifically, micro/nano-fabrication techniques, biosensor technologies and polymer chemistry.

Jon completed a Bachelor of Sciences with first class honours from the University of Essex, a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Manchester, and a Masters of IntellectuaJonWrightHS-Cl Property from the University of Technology in Sydney. Jon has also published over 30 international peer-reviewed scientific journals.

In addition to Jon’s outstanding academic achievements, he has worked as an Intellectual Property Manager for Xennia in the UK, where he was responsible for managing their IP portfolio and identifying key areas of inkjet printing related technology for exploitation.

Jon has also spent a number of years in private practice where he was responsible for managing large patent portfolios for clients across a wide range of technologies. Jon says, “I am particularly excited about joining a firm with such well established credentials as POF, and am relishing the prospect of being able to work with so many experts in the field.”

Jon’s interests include football, cricket, and any other sport that he and his fellow English compatriots have long since given up hope on of achieving glory.
