I joined the Siemens IP department in 2005, shortly after graduating from the University of Reading with a BSc (Hons) in Physics.  I was awarded a Merit in my Patent Administration certificate in 2008, and was elected as an associate member of The Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys in 2009.  As an in-house department, we deal with everything from Invention Disclosures and first filings right through to oppositions, grants, fee payments and inventor remuneration.  However, no one mentioned it would also involve helping to round up a sow and her piglets who had escaped from the neighboring farm and had taken up residence in the office carpark!
