With nearly 30 years’ experience I have a wealth of knowledge to share with large and small clients alike. I offer clear and concise advice, always keeping an eye on the commercial realities of situations.

I advise on strategies for clearance searching and how best to protect marks, including the protection of a major redesign of a household name, together with the filing and prosecution of applications, and all contentious matters. I have helped a client establish and maintain a successful licensing business, and have also worked to prevent the unauthorised use of a famous UK brand in other countries. I particularly enjoy helping clients to manage their trade mark portfolios, to ensure they are always one step ahead of their competitors. I am actively involved in settlement negotiations on behalf of my clients, and where it is not possible to settle disputes, I work tirelessly for my clients’ interests, seeing off fraudulent applications made by third parties to register established and legitimate brands.
