Jonathan Neve

Part-Qualified Patent Attorney

Jonathan is a part-qualified as a patent attorney based in our Oxford office. Jonathan joined J A Kemp in 2021, having spent four years at another leading patent firm. He obtained a Distinction in the Certificate in Intellectual Property Law at Queen Mary, University of London in 2018. 

During his time in the profession, Jonathan has been involved in numerous oppositions at the EPO, both offensive and defensive. He also has extensive experience in EP prosecution and freedom-to‑operate analyses. Much of Jonathan’s work has been related to diagnostic DNA sequencing assays, including the associated bioinformatics workflows. He also has experience in the antibody and biomarker workspaces. 

Jonathan has a Master’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry and a DPhil in Biochemistry, both from the University of Oxford. 

During his DPhil, Jonathan was heavily involved in both the set-up and running of a new high-throughput DNA sequencing facility in the University of Oxford’s Biochemistry Department, which was subsequently used in his, and many others, research. Combining transcriptome-wide analysis with individual gene studies allowed for the identification of different post-transcriptional regulatory pathways active in different cell lines, as well as highlighting the pervasiveness of these mechanisms. He was also awarded the BTP Fellowship in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Pembroke College during his doctoral studies.
