Responsive, astute and technically skilled, Matthew Ng enjoys working with clients in fields like telecommunications and electronic and mechanical devices, to protect and exploit their vital assets.


Appreciated for his deep expertise, particularly in highly technical fields such as photonics, optoelectronic devices and digital signal processing, Matthew focuses on patent applications and opposition matters. Experienced before both the UK and European authorities, he acts for a client base that ranges from world-leading technology multinationals to start-ups.

Matthew works on patent matters in a wide range of technical fields, including electronic and mechanical devices, telecommunications, and digital signal processing. He regularly provides his clients with advice on potential infringements, and handles opposition matters at the UKIPO and European Patent Office.

Having completed a PhD in the field of light emitting polymers, Matthew has particularly extensive knowledge of photonics and organic/inorganic optoelectronic devices, and is much in demand from clients in the materials science and engineering sectors. He has also worked closely with a number of UK and overseas-based high-tech companies, drafting and prosecuting their patent applications. These include many well-known multinational companies, although he also enjoys advising technology start-ups on protecting their assets and growing their businesses.

In addition to patent matters, Matthew also handles UK and Community registered design applications.

Along with his colleagues Anna Hatt, John Hull and Sarah-Jane Crawford, Matthew provides a monthly update on UK patent case law for the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys journal.
