Waterfront team: IP litigation

Best thing about your job:  the variety of interesting and challenging work, and getting positive results for clients (not to mention winning!).   …and the worst:  the central line (especially in the summer).   Top tip for clients:  for many businesses, intellectual property is often the most valuable asset; but only when it’s protected and enforced.  So make sure you protect your IP and are vigilant in enforcing it against potential infringers, otherwise it may become worthless (remember when Burberry was associated with chavs?).   Proudest work achievement:  researching and preparing a novel legal argument that was eventually approved by the trial judge (although, sadly, it wasn’t accepted on the facts).  It now forms part of the law in the UK!      Most visited website:  Westlaw/IPKat/BBC news/GoodFood/Facebook (but certainly not in that order).   In my spare time I… enjoy trying out new recipes (I’m the nominated chef of the house), and playing the occasional round of golf.
