Commercial Disputes Lawyer
Commercial and Technology Disputes Associate/ Senior Associate
Leading IP firm
My client is particularly well-known for its representation of clients with significant IP and technology assets, such as clients in the Life Sciences and Technology, Media & Telecoms (TMT) sectors. As a full-service firm, it is able to serve all the legal needs of such companies. The firm's biggest practice area is its world-renowned IP practice - the largest IP practice in Europe - where a large proportion of lawyers have science and engineering degrees. Historically, the IP practice was focused on IP Litigation (for which the firm is consistently ranked in the top band by the legal directories), and that remains an extremely successful and remunerative core practice area. Over recent years, the firm has committed itself to a strategy of preserving but also carefully expanding beyond this core practice area by developing, in particular, its transactional areas. This strategy of growing the practice around a worldclass IP brand is delivering tangible results: the client base and the partnership have expanded and revenues and profits have increased. But it is, more than anything else, the people, their specialist skills, the firm's culture and its stellar client base that make the firm truly special and in a class of its own amongst London firms.
