Wrays is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Baddeley who will officially join the firm as a Principal on 1 June 2020. Richard joins Wrays after 31 years at Watermark and after Watermark was subsumed into the listed IPH Group of entities.
Richard provides advice on all aspects of intellectual property and has built an impressive track record acting for a range of clients from start-ups to large multinationals. Richard’s background in both chemical and mechanical engineering provides a platform to understanding the technical merits of innovation across a wide range of fields including the energy, mining and automotive sectors.
Chairman Gary Cox announced the appointment saying “Richard is a valuable addition to the Wrays stable of expertise. He is a highly experienced IP specialist who is well-known for providing clients with tailored commercial advice. With his experience as past-President of the Institute of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys and connections to the energy industry, Richard has a lot to offer Wrays. We look forward to having him as part of our team”.
Richard’s appointment follows the recent arrival of Dr Mary Turonek to the Wrays Chemical, Resources and Oil and Gas team. With Mary and Richard now both at Wrays, the firm has arguably one of the best technical chemical and engineering IP groups in the country.
