New appointment for Secerna in York

Team news 28/07/2022

Intellectual property specialist Secerna LLP has welcomed a new trainee patent attorney to its team in York, bolstering the firm’s electrical and mechanical engineering expertise.

Jay Ruaux joins the established intellectual property law firm to support a growing worldwide client base of multi-national corporations, FTSE and NYSE listed companies, universities, spin-out companies, small businesses, and innovators.

Having completed an MEng in Engineering at Cambridge, Jay brings a wealth of knowledge on materials science, electronic devices, artificial intelligence, and semiconductors to his role at Secerna. He will work across a broad range of sectors including engineering and electronics.

Jay says that Secerna’s appeal lay in the firm’s size and global client base, “The opportunity to work closely with the partners and senior members of the team was a big part of my decision to join the firm. Add in that straightaway I got to gain real experience working on cases for large global businesses from start to end and the choice was easy to make.

He adds, “Recently I have been involved in innovations on the forefront of computing. It is exciting to be working on new technologies that only a few people know about.”

Secerna partner Jason Boakes adds, “We are very happy to welcome Jay to our team. His knowledge of electronics and manufacturing methods is already proving incredibly valuable to our work with clients across the UK and beyond.”

“The firm is experiencing significant growth. We are keen to continue attracting and providing development paths for part and fully qualified patent attorneys, and talented young science and engineering graduates who, like Jay, are looking for an alternative to a career in industry.”
