A bit about me

I’m calm, confident and analytical – I’ll get to the crux of the issue and identify the commercial, legal and pragmatic solution.

When your intellectual property is being challenged, I’ll help you to protect your assets. As a litigator, I make sure my clients resolve their problems swiftly, ideally without court involvement. These include a range of intellectual property claims, including copyright and trade mark infringements and domain name disputes and issues with suppliers, or between directors and shareholders, among many others.

No matter the industry, I can help you to safeguard what’s yours, and I’ve worked with authors, entrepreneurs, tech start-ups, inventors, photographers, and directors and shareholders from all sorts of sectors. Throughout each case, I strive to maintain the balance so everyone can enjoy what they’re legitimately entitled to.

I know that you rarely work from just 9 to 5, so I’m on hand to help whenever you need me, getting the job done on time and cost efficiently.

Want to know more?

Don’t panic! An unconsidered reaction could make the difference between a successful outcome and an uncomfortable one.

Be clear about what you want to achieve. There’s not much benefit in issuing proceedings against someone if you still want to maintain a commercial relationship with them.

Get it in writing. If it’s clear what each party wants and what the consequences are if those obligations aren’t met, then you’ll either avoid a dispute or make it easier for me to achieve your objectives if it comes to it.

Do I need consent to contact someone who gave me a business card?

GDPR is a hot topic right now, so many clients are concerned about the potential implications. The answer is no, you can contact them via email with no issues unless you intend to put them on a mailing list they didn’t want to be on.

How much will it cost?

At the outset, there are usually too many unknown factors to give anything but an indication of the final costs, but I will give a budget for the initial steps and stick to it.

Am I going to win?

Once we have considered all the key points and evidence, we can form a practical view of the prospects and plan the way forward.
