I have represented the many UK and international businesses for almost 30 years, in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and before the European Commission and have earned a name as a leading individual in my field of IP litigation. 

I focus on the media and entertainment, technology, retail, and sports sectors which have involved me working with UK private and public sector organisations as well as large multi-nationals.

In the last decade I have been involved in many of the leading IP reported cases. In particular, acting for Ordnance Survey, on one of the largest database rights cases in the UK. This case regards decisions on subsistence of copyright in still photographs, the leading case on subsistence of copyright in user interfaces, screens, data structures and databases and infringement of registered design rights relating to the design of a firefighter's helmet. 

In relation to trade marks I represented the Claimant in one of the leading cases on what constitutes use of a trademark on the internet in different jurisdictions (the 800 FLOWERS litigation) and, more recently I have represented the Claimant (successfully) in a case for trademark infringement and passing off concerning character merchandising rights, and represented Karen Millen Fashions Limited (successfully) in claims against Karen Miller, the founder of the business, concerning the rights in KAREN MILLEN mark in various countries around the world.
