Patent star 2022


United Kingdom (England)

Practice areas:

Patent litigation
Patent strategy & counseling

My practice is focussed on litigating patents especially patents protecting pharmaceutical products in the UK as well as advising on and co-ordinating European patent litigation strategies more broadly.

I joined the London office of Bird & Bird in 1986 and became a partner in the Intellectual Property Group ten years later in 1996. I offer expertise in UK patent actions and the co-ordination of cross border patent litigation in particular in the area of pharmaceuticals and medical devices. My practice also encompasses regulatory data exclusivity and supplementary protection certificates.

I speak at IP conferences and contribute to leading IP journals on aspects of IP law and litigation. I am also the editor of International Intellectual Property Litigation, published by Butterworths.
