Dominic Forsythe

Partner, Patent Attorney

Dominic handles a varied portfolio of patent cases building on his considerable expertise in condensed matter physics, electromagnetism and software. His work currently focusses on lithography systems, semiconductor technologies, laser manufacturing applications, medical imaging, microfluidics, bioinformatics, machine learning, and medical devices.

He deals primarily with patent drafting, prosecution and opposition work in Europe, representing a range of client types from university spin-outs to large multinationals. Dominic also has extensive experience handling examination and opposition hearings at the European Patent Office, as well as appeals.

Before joining J A Kemp in 2002 Dominic spent several years working as a research fellow at the University of Cambridge following his PhD, which helped him gain a strong understanding of academic culture and practical research environments. This experience helps Dominic deal effectively with clients from that background and his portfolio balance reflects this. A high proportion of his work originates from direct contacts with world leading universities and academics.

Dominic became a partner at J A Kemp in 2012. He speaks fluent French and relocated to France in 2018 to join J A Kemp’s Paris office.
