”In my work, I'm inspired by the feeling of succeeding – when we are able to protect an important invention by a client and bring them the great news of a granted patent. And the challenges. It's always rewarding to meet with clients, discuss their inventions and draft the patent applications. Every day is unique in some way, so the work is always interesting. There is also a great team of professionals at our office, which makes it a pleasure to come to work every day."
