Samuel Bateman PhD, MSci, CPA, EPA

Senior Associate

Samuel is a patent attorney in our Electronics, Computing & Physics group.

Samuel has experience working with clients at all levels, from start-ups and SMEs to large multi-nationals. He works across a wide variety of different technical fields, including analogue and digital electronics, display devices, mobile technology, battery technology, optical systems, and advanced robotics. Samuel also has experience in prosecuting computer-implemented inventions before both the UK Patent Office and the European Patent Office (EPO).

Education & background

Samuel graduated from the University of Bristol with an MSci in Physics, before completing a PhD in Non-Linear Photonics at the University of Bath. His academic research focussed on the non-linear behaviour of light in optical fibres, specifically of a type known as “Photonic Crystal Fibres”, and was primarily aimed at developing a fibre-based gas discharge laser using novel negative curvature fibres. He also carried out research directed towards developing a treatment for silica glass to prevent and repair defects in high power fibre laser systems, and worked on developing new technologies for solar energy generation.

During his PhD he worked on several papers which were published in peer-reviewed journals.

Samuel entered the profession in 2015, and joined Withers & Rogers in 2021 in their Electronics, Computing & Physics group. In March 2023, he was registered as a representative before the new Unified Patent Court, one of the first European patent attorneys to be entered on the list of UPC representatives.

On a personal note...

In his spare time, Samuel enjoys travelling abroad and is a keen hiker. He is also an enthusiastic reader, a dedicated fan of Formula One, and enjoys seeing live music at the variety of different venues in London and in the Bristol area.
