Intellectual property disputes

IP disputes involve complex legal and factual issues that demand careful analysis and understanding.

Our experience

We have recently acted in the following cases:

  • Lifestyle Equities C.V & anor v Royal county of Berkshire Polo Club Limited & others acting for Royal Berkshire Polo Club in successfully defending trademark infringement proceedings brought by Lifestyle Equities C.V and other in connection with the BEVERLY HILLS POLO CLUB trade mark – see judgment here; and
  • Acting for parallel importers of pharmecutical products in major trade mark infringement and patent infringement litigation involving allegations of intellectual property infringment by pharmaceutical manufacturers.
  • I have worked with Julian Maitland-Walker and Sheree-Ann Virgin. Both appear to me to be excellent practitioners who understand the needs of their client and ensure that the litigation is conducted in a way that meets those needs. They are both extremely pleasant to deal with. They are intelligent and thoughtful individuals with good commercial instincts.
  • In my experience, Maitland Walker’s key strength lies in representing clients in commercial litigation who may not be familiar with the litigation process and ensuring that it is demystified such that the client can pursue the matter efficiently and effectively.
  • Sheree-Ann Virgin is fantastic to work with. She takes a very collaborative approach and is not at all adverse to rolling up her sleeves and getting stuck into the weeds of the case.
  • Julian Maitland-Walker is a seasoned hand who is the perfect partner for both clients and Counsel
