Mark specialises in patent litigation and other contentious IP disputes, which usually involve a cross-border angle.
He has represented clients before all levels of the UK courts and in coordinating UK proceedings with parallel actions in various jurisdictions in Europe, the US and Asia. Mark frequently acts for companies in the high tech space and draws on his technical background and depth of experience in this area to assist in handling complex cases. Mark advises on both assertion of patents and defence against infringement claims in disputes concerning essential and non-essential technologies. Although Mark's practice is predominantly contentious, he also advises clients in relation to other aspects of IP such as drafting and negotiating of licensing, settlement, and other commercial agreements.
