Daryl is experienced with computer-implemented inventions and regularly provides advice on the viability of such inventions at the EPO and UKIPO, especially at the initial drafting stage or pre-filing in Europe.

*In the medical device field, Daryl particularly enjoys working on a range of subject matter, including heart valves, drug infusion devices, coronary stents and delivery devices, auto-injector pens, clinical diagnostics systems for blood sampling and data analysis, tissue ablation instruments, lung-retensioning systems, and diabetes-monitoring devices.

Daryl also has experience of collaborating with litigation teams on national court proceedings, in particular in the UK and Germany, and looks forward to this expanding to the Unified Patent Court (UPC), which is expected to open soon.
