Daniel Shaw

Partner, European and UK Patent Attorney, European Patent Litigator

Dan is a European and UK Patent Attorney and European Patent Litigator in our Biotechnology and Life Sciences Group who is based in our Cambridge office. He entered the patent profession in 2009, after completing PhD and undergraduate degrees at the University of Cambridge (in Plant Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, respectively). He joined J A Kemp as an associate in 2017, and became a partner in 2020.

Much of Dan’s practice is focused on helping his clients obtain European patent protection for their inventions, but he also has extensive experience of preparing new patent applications; handling international and foreign cases; monitoring third party patent applications; and opposing/defending granted patents at the European Patent Office (EPO). Additionally, his practice has included managing pan-European portfolios of supplementary protection certificate (SPC) applications and providing infringement, patentability and freedom-to-operate opinions.

Dan represents a wide range of clients, including a world-leading seed company, a top US biotech company, a renowned UK university, as well as Japanese, Korean and US law firms. He offers expertise across a wide range of scientific disciplines, including plant molecular biology, genetic modification, antibody-based technologies, microbiology, vaccines, diagnostics and medical devices.

Using his knowledge of the Korean language and culture, Dan enjoys making regular trips to Seoul to establish new connections and build relationships with his existing clients.
