Alex Harvey MEng, CPA, EPA

Senior Associate

Alex is a patent attorney in our Advanced Engineering group.

Having joined Withers & Rogers as a trainee in 2016, Alex has significant experience in drafting and prosecuting UK and European patent applications, primarily relating to technology in the materials and engineering sectors.

Alex has previously worked for global technology companies as well as academic institutes, and has a particular interest in the fields of composites, Titanium and Steel metallurgy and conductive polymer research. His experience in research has afforded him the ability to gain an intimate understanding of inventions in these fields, and this enables him to provide clients with commercially relevant IP protection.

Education & background

Alex graduated from the University of Sheffield in July 2015 with a first class Masters degree in Aerospace Materials, his thesis focussing upon the life cycle analysis of materials used in global stainless steel production. He also received the 2015 Armourer’s and Braziers Prize during his course of study, as well as an SMEA award in 2014, in recognition of his research in the field of conductive polymers.

On a personal note...

Outside of academia, Alex is passionate about sports and fitness, spending his free evenings and weekends either at the gym or on the golf course. Alex regularly contributes to an American Football blog and also enjoys travelling, keeping up with current affairs and music, although his friends often joke that he only takes them to see the more eclectic bands that Sheffield has to offer.
