Chartered trade mark attorney and a former authorised representative at the EUIPO, with over 30 years’ experience in the field of trade marks, designs and copyright. Active in CITMA for over 15 years, serving as president from 2014 to 2016.

I am ranked in the top tier of UK trade mark practitioners in the WTR1000 guide for 2020, which included the following editorial commentary: “Chris McLeod is diligent to the point of pedantry, which means that his clients get a thorough and thoughtful service. An experienced, creative, calm and pragmatic trademark attorney, he gives considered, strategic advice on prosecution issues which is delivered with a wit drier than a footballer’s hair after a half-time team talk from Sir Alex Ferguson."
