Following graduation, Dominic spent seven years working as a physicist in governmental research and development in areas such as electro-optics, lasers, displays, scene simulation, guidance, sensor systems and information analysis. Following this, Dominic joined an in-house intellectual property department for a high-profile Defence and Security research organisation where he gained his Chartered UK Patent Attorney and European Patent Attorney qualifications, also becoming an intellectual property business partner.

Dominic has significant experience in patent drafting and prosecution, and he is familiar with communications, optical, antenna, sensing, image processing, and electronics technologies including electronic warfare and cybersecurity, in addition to mechanical and computer implemented inventions.
