We are delighted to announce that Toby Simpson has joined HOFFMANN EITLE as a partner.
Toby, who is based in our London office, joins us from another top-tier firm, where he was a partner for eight years. Toby’s patent practice lies in the fields of pharmaceuticals and chemistry. He has extensive experience of opposition and appeal proceedings before the EPO, and regularly represents clients in relation to such matters. In particular, Toby has successfully defended numerous patents directed to blockbuster drugs, as well as patents directed to medical devices and well-known cosmetic products.
Commenting on this development, Morten Garberg, a member of the firm’s management committee, said: “We are truly excited that Toby has joined HOFFMANN EITLE. Toby brings with him a wealth of experience across a range of technical disciplines, as well as an exceptional reputation for handling opposition and appeals.
