Huw Evans is one of the United Kingdom’s leading IP litigators, with almost 30 years’ experience of helping clients to protect their intellectual assets. He is well-known for his work in life sciences and healthcare sectors, as well as technology. Mr Evans has acted for clients on both the enforcement and defence of infringement claims at all jurisdictional levels. Much of his work has focused on crossborder
disputes relating to IP rights across industry sectors including mechanical and software, telecoms, MPEG, FinTech, inkjet printing, oil and energy, pharmaceuticals, antibodies, immunoassays, diagnostics and food.

Mr Evans understands that litigation is rarely the end goal and while very comfortable in any contentious scenario, a significant part of his practice includes helping clients manage risk and arriving at solutions that do not necessarily involve the courts. He has been described as “an amazing negotiator” by Chambers. He also has extensive experience in working with clients with the launch of new products in crowded IP fields, from both the brands and patents perspective.

Mr Evans is consistently highly rated by major legal directories such as The Legal 500 and Chambers UK who have described him as “very able, responsive and commercially minded” and as a “very impressive IP litigator who… keeps the big picture in mind”. Mr Evans is also a patent star in the IP Stars guide.
