Tim Cadman

Senior Associate, Patents and Trade Marks

Areas I can assist you with are:

  • Patents in the mechanical and materials science fields, including metallurgy, cryogenic technologies, semiconductor devices, medical devices
  • Trade marks


I graduated from Cambridge University in 2004 with an MSci and MA in Natural Sciences, specialising in Materials Science & Metallurgy. I joined Serjeants in September of the same year.


The nature of my degree enabled me to gain a broad range of scientific knowledge, including the principles involved in the operation, use and production of nanomaterials, semiconductors, and engineering materials, such as metals, ceramics and polymers.


I qualified as a European patent attorney in 2008 and as a chartered UK patent attorney in 2009. I am also a qualified trade mark attorney and help clients to protect their trade marks and designs worldwide.


Outside of work, I’m a bit sporty. As well as being a big Newcastle United fan, I am a keen football player, I have run several marathons and have recently completed an Ironman triathlon.
