UPC Authorised Representative
Jennifer is a highly experienced UK & European Patent Attorney with twenty years of Intellectual property experience obtained within private practice and in-house.

Having trained at a large IP practice in London, Jennifer then spent over eight years in-house with a world-leading multinational tool company, where she provided IP support for a range of business units including an oil & gas pipeline welding subsidiary and an innovative drill-bit plant in Germany. During this time, Jennifer handled a wide range of issues relating to patents, trademarks, and industrial designs, also gaining significant experience surrounding IP asset management, transfer, licensing, and value realisation.

Jennifer joined Openshaw & Co in 2020, where she primarily advises on a range of patent and other IP matters in the fields of mechanical engineering, process engineering, and materials science, specialising in patent prosecution, with a strong track record in EPO Oral Proceedings.

Jennifer holds a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge, which included a final year project on combustion processes. This knowledge continues to be put to good use, with Jennifer applying her expertise across a growing range of areas. These include the development of synthetic fuels and fuel additives, optimising waste combustion and environmental innovations through to chemical plant design.
