Head of Dispute Resolution
Philip has worked in the field of trade marks and IP for 35 years as a trade mark attorney, solicitor and, most recently, a barrister. He spent 20 of those years with a leading London firm, rising to partner and Head of Department. Prior to that he gained experience in-house in the technology, entertainment and pharmaceutical fields. Philip has extensive experience of all aspects of trade mark law and practice from prosecution, to exploitation and enforcement/litigation. He specialises, in particular, in litigation and advocacy before the courts and UKIPO. In amongst all that he also found time to be President of the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys, a founder member of the Intellectual Property Regulation Board and a tutor/examiner on the Nottingham Trent University Trade Mark Practice course.

When he isn’t doing that you might find him pursuing his love of adventure travel on a motorcycle, probably in a desert in Central Asia.
