Timo joined Keltie in 2017 after graduating from the University of Birmingham with a first class Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. At university, Timo’s studies covered subject areas including advanced mechanics, sustainable energy systems, advanced vehicle engineering, biofuels and combustion, and micro and nano technologies. Timo completed his dissertation project in partnership with the Dearman Engine company, focussing on the application of polymers in cryogenic ambient expansion engines and in particular on in-cylinder lubrication methods. Timo gained industrial experience alongside his studies, undertaking internships at Cummins Turbo Technologies and at Jaguar Land Rover where he was part of the Vehicle Engineering team in Special Vehicle Operations, working on a limited edition Range Rover project.
At Keltie, Timo deals primarily with a wide range of direct clients, from large multi-national businesses to individual inventors. Timo has a particular interest in technologies aimed at a sustainable future, and a significant proportion of his work in Keltie’s Engineering team is related to wind turbines and the renewable energy sector. Timo has considerable experience of drafting patent applications for new inventions, as well as assessing the patentability of new ideas, and providing analysis of infringement and validity for freedom-to-operate assessments. Timo also has experience of patent opposition work and has attended multiple opposition hearings at the EPO in Munich and the Hague.
Timo lives in Cheltenham and splits his time between our Cotswold and London offices. Timo has completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Intellectual Property and is currently training towards becoming a qualified UK and European patent attorney.
