Lucas Tang

Trainee patent attorney
I joined NLO in February 2020 as a trainee patent attorney, with a scientific background in physics. My diverse interests allows me to understand a broader range of inventions, and tackle various IP problems.


  • Physics

Prior to joining NLO, I was a PhD student at Radboud University Nijmegen, in the field of condensed matter physics. My research projects ranged from studying field-effect transistors, to detecting unconventional magnetism.

I have always prided myself in putting attention to detail in my work.

Besides my own PhD research, I was also involved in providing services to external (international) researchers, tailoring and performing challenging experiments to their needs. Combining this with my technical background, it gave me a strong foundation to enter the IP sector. My time at NLO has been a big learning curve thus far, and with further training, I aim to qualify as a European patent attorney, providing my clients with finest protection available for their invention.

Outside the office, I like to put the rest of my efforts onto the rugby pitch for the local club.
