Bronze - Firms: prosecution

AA Thornton boasts a fast-growing patent group, comprised of both technically capable patent attorneys and versatile solicitors. Its busy prosecution practice serves a diverse group of SMEs based all over the world and operating in sectors as varied as pharmaceuticals, information technology and green technology. Getting the practice noticed is Craig Turner, who has been working in the IP field for 25 years and has a stellar track record before the European Patent Office (EPO) – the life sciences are his focus. Joining him are Adrian Bennett and Mike Jennings. Bennett, who has been with the firm since 1996, chairs the partnership and sits within the mechanical engineering department, while “strategic thinker” Jennings has a computing and physics background and brings experience of working both in private practice and in-house at IBM. “Mike is top-class in terms of his knowledge, skills and expertise. He is highly regarded as an AI expert and provides creative solutions.”
