Joshua Marshall, Solicitor, Intellectual Property - Protection and Enforcement
I am a solicitor in the Intellectual Property and Technology Protection and Enforcement team. I practice in all areas of intellectual property litigation including copyright, design, trademark and patent, primarily in proceedings issued in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court. In addition, and as part of reputation management, I also specialise in proceedings for libel, slander and malicious falsehood.
I work with a variety of high end to high street fashion designers and retailers, including household names, assisting in the protection of their intellectual property rights in the market. I also work with an array of commercial entities in various sectors assisting in the protection and enforcement of their key brands, trademarks and product technologies. Finally, I advise both individuals businesses in the protection of their reputations in the media and online.
Having completed my training contract at one of the world's largest global law firms, I took a year out of practice to study the Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) at the University of Oxford, obtaining a Distinction and winning the Law Faculty Prize in Intellectual Property Law.
In my spare time, I am a keen sportsman, having played Rugby Union for Leeds Carnegie Academy and obtained an Oxford Blue through representing the University of Oxford in their Rugby League Varsity Match against the University of Cambridge. I also enjoy writing fictional novels.
