Keltie is delighted to announce that Dr Jonathan Goodacre is a partner of the firm as of 1st May 2023.
Jonathan will also lead the firm’s Cambridge office, where he has been based for several years now. Jonathan has been with Keltie since joining the patent profession and has become an integral part of the Life Sciences and Chemistry team. He has wide range of clients in the pharmaceuticals, cell therapy and agritech sectors and is looking to grow this practice further within the East of England.
Keltie partner, Devanand Crease, says “I have worked closely with Jonathan for over a decade. He has a great touch with clients and really goes the extra mile to seek out a commercial solution for them. This is what makes him a natural choice to lead the firm’s expansion in Cambridge and East of England.”
Jonathan said “It is an honour and privilege to be made partner at a firm where I started and learnt the profession. I am truly grateful to work with the same great people who have made this journey possible and who have supported me every step of the way. Keltie is a fantastic place to work where the values instilled in us all by our founder, David Keltie, remain strong. While my focus going forward will be in Cambridge and the East of England, we are one firm – and a great one at that!”
For 35 years, Keltie has sought to break the mould of traditional IP firms by creating an environment where talented individuals can enjoy building great relationships with exceptional clients. In that time, we have grown a diverse partnership across the patent and trademark practice. A partnership that continues to advance the inclusive ideals that founded the firm. Keltie attorneys work on the full spectrum of clients, from start-ups to multinational corporations. We value the relationships with our clients and work hard to build a level of understanding that allows us to anticipate challenges, as well as see opportunities. We are proud that Keltie attorneys are unique and it is our uniqueness that allows us to build outstanding IP relationships across the UK, Ireland, Europe and beyond.

One of the outcomes of the recent COP27 meeting in Sharm el Sheikh was the emphasis on the role that agriculture has to play in moving towards net zero. Fulfilling that role will demand innovation in the sector (‘agritech’ as it is often known), and IP protection will play a crucial part in that innovation.
11.01.2023What is a patent?
A patent is a time-limited monopoly awarded by countries as an incentive for investment in novel and non-obvious technical innovation. The purpose of the patent system is to allow companies and inventors to invest in innovation without concern that this will be lost when they go to market because others will copy their innovations.
