Simon Wright, partner with JA Kemp in London, England, will speak to IPLAF about the European Unitary Patent System. Simon has over 25 years’ experience of patent work, including drafting and filing patent applications throughout the world, but in particular before the European Patent Office (EPO). Simon handles prosecution, as well as opposition and appeal work, primarily in the life sciences.

His technical work has covered pharmaceuticals and vaccines, insulin inhalers and fermentation technology. He also handles cases on gene therapy, personalised nutrition, biofuels, liposome technology, prognostic cancer markers and stem cells. Simon’s clients range from European multinational companies to small UK academic organizations.

Simon was involved in the seminal EPO Board of Appeal Decision concerning a contraceptive method involving the administration of LHRH to women. He also acted as an expert witness, and so gave evidence to the UK High Court, in the HGS vs. Eli Lilly litigation, which led to the first ever Supreme Court decision on a patent matter (concerning industrial applicability).
