Dave A Wyatt

Executive Director at Henry Goh & Co Sdn Bhd

Dave A Wyatt joined Henry Goh Malaysia in 1996 and was appointed as an executive director in 2002. He has devoted many years at the firm to building up the human capital, expertise and processes of the patent and industrial design department.

Mr Wyatt is a European patent attorney and a registered Malaysian patent, industrial design and trademark agent. He began his IP career in the patent department of General Electric Company in the United Kingdom before working in private practice with leading patent attorney firms in London and Munich.

Mr Wyatt has lectured and conducted workshops on patent practice and drafting for the Malaysian patent agent examinations. His comprehensive in-house training on technical, legal and procedural aspects of IP protection has led to the successful registration of 14 Malaysian patent agents at Henry Goh.

Throughout his career, Mr Wyatt’s practice has focused on patent drafting and prosecution. However, apart from prosecution work, patent disputes and litigation have been increasing in Malaysia in recent years and Mr Wyatt has come to be in demand for his opinions on patent validity and infringement. He has appeared before the high court of several states of Malaysia as a patent attorney expert witness.

With over 30 years of IP experience, Mr Wyatt’s advice and opinion are much sought after. They are increasingly leveraged within the firm by Mr Wyatt offering expertise and mentoring to the patent and industrial design teams, as well as global perspective on and insight into developments in IP law and practice.

Mr Wyatt is a member of the Malaysian Intellectual Property Association, the Asian Patent Attorneys Association, the International Federation of Industrial Property Attorneys and the International Trademark Association, and an associate member of the United Kingdom’s Chartered Institute of Trademark Attorneys. True to his engineering roots, he is also a member of the United Kingdom’s Institution of Engineering and Technology and a chartered engineer of the Engineering Council UK.
