IP Scope was established in 2009 by Dr Phil Coldrick
PhD CSci CChem MRSC
Phil established IP Scope after the closure of Kodak European Research, Cambridge UK, where he had been a patent specialist and research scientist with Kodak for over 26 years, managing a worldwide patent portfolio and advising on all aspects of the patenting process from filing through to maintenance of the granted patents. Phil is an experienced materials scientist, patent searcher and analyst working at the intersection of the technical, business and IP vectors for driving innovative ideas to commercial success. A particular benefit of working with Phil is that he is very familiar with both the legal processes and the technology and can therefore provide a very cost effective route for IP advice and strategic portfolio management.
Phil graduated from the University of Birmingham in 1982 with a PhD in organic chemistry and joined the Research Division of Kodak Limited as an imaging scientist where he went on to design many novel materials for the printing industry. He is an inventor with ten patents in imaging systems.
