Matthew Gillard BA, CPA, EPA,


Matthew Gillard is a Patent Attorney in our Electronics, Computing & Physics group.

Matthew’s clients include world-leading companies in the telecommunications, electronics and computing sectors and several leading UK universities.

Matthew has succeeded in obtaining broad patent protection for highly mathematical, algorithmic inventions on behalf of a range of clients. In one particular hearing, Matthew’s thorough grasp of the mathematical technology at issue enabled him to eliminate objections to the grant of a patent through the unusual step of arguing that an alleged earlier design was inoperative (i.e. by arguing insufficiency).

Education & background

Matthew graduated from Oxford University in 1993 with a degree in Physics.

He joined Withers & Rogers in 1998 following three years as a Patent Examiner at the UKIPO and became a partner in 2005.

On a personal note...

Matthew enjoys spending time with his family. When time allows, Matthew also likes to indulge in running, badminton, travel, history and following the fortunes of the Welsh rugby team.
