Nicholas Scott

I specialise in IP law, especially in technology. I advise our clients on everything from outsourcing projects, network procurement and infrastructure contracts, and managed services agreements to technology cooperation and collaboration arrangements. I also have extensive experience in dealing with the day-to-day commercial issues that companies face, including agency and representation, consumer law, advertising and sales promotions.

Robert Michaels

I have a broad IP practice, mostly focused on litigation of patents, trade marks and designs. I have considerable experience of coordinating and running patent litigation in more than one jurisdiction and in designing and implementing pan-European protection and enforcement programs, running one such program for a consumer electronics client for almost 15 years.

Christian Jeffries

For many years, all relevant legal publications have listed me as one of the leading top-tier patent lawyers in the UK. Already in 2020, the legal magazine JUVE recognised me as one of the ‘Top 40 under 40’ of all the UK lawyers.
