I entered the trade mark profession in 1969 and qualified in 1972. I was elected a Fellow in 1986, and have advised and acted for a number of clients in fast moving consumer businesses. In addition to my IP Litigator Certificate I hold the Higher Courts Litigator Certificate with rights of audience. I have a particular interest in domain names and was a member of Nominet's Policy Advisory Board from its inception in 1999, which I chaired from 2006 until 2010 when I was shortlisted for election to ICANN's board of directors. I was senior partner of Alexander Ramage Associates until 2015 when it was acquired by a London law firm and I now offer direct consultancy services to trade mark owners.
