Andy Evitt

European Patent Attorney

Andrew is a European Patent Attorney and enjoys working on technologies across the chemical, biotech and simple mechanical sectors.  He holds a Master’s degree and PhD in chemistry from The University of Bristol, and has carried out post-doctoral research both abroad and in the UK.  While in the lab, he worked with a number of multinational pharmaceutical and food and drink companies, and parts of this research resulted in him being a named inventor on a number of patent applications.

Andrew stepped out of the lab and into the patent profession in 2012.  After working at another private practice IP firm for six years, he joined Greaves Brewster LLP in 2018.

Andrew has helped clients of all sizes, across industry and academia, to understand and navigate the world of patent protection.  He strongly values building good relationships with clients and, in particular, getting to know their business well.  This allows him to offer targeted and straightforward advice that is in line with each client’s commercial objectives.
