 Dr Christopher Benson 

Chris principally handles patent matters in the areas of electronics, computer software and physics.

Chris has prosecuted and advised on patents relating to electronic circuits and systems, including computer processors and semiconductor devices, computer based inventions, such as graphics processing, computer algorithms and computer communications, consumer electronics such as navigation devices and home electronics, and also carbon nanotube-based inventions.

Chris represents a wide range of clients from multi-national companies to start-up companies at the outset of developing their IP portfolio. Chris regularly attends proceedings at the European Patent Office, particularly before Examining Divisions. Chris has also represented clients in proceedings before the UK Intellectual Property Office.

Chris graduated from Lancaster University, UK in 1999 with a first class degree in Computer Systems Engineering. He then obtained a PhD from Lancaster University through the study of electronic radiation detectors and the effect of radiation on microelectronic devices. His PhD studies involved the production of a microelectronic dosimeter for real-time in-vivo radiation dosimetry of patients during radiotherapy and the response measurement of MOSFET- based dosimeters to differing radiation fields.

Chris qualified as a Chartered and European Patent Attorney in 2006. Chris joined HGF in 2008 and became a Partner in 2010.
