Challenging the status quo for 25 years to ensure market access and freedom to operate through IP rights clearance, advertising advice and litigation

Iain leads Pinsent Masons' contentious intellectual property practice having prosecuted many of the UK’s most high profile pieces of IP litigation through the UK courts and then on to the Court of Justice of the European Union.  His European Court highlights include Interflora -v- Marks & Spencer - a trade mark infringement case relating to the use of Interflora as an AdWord in the Google advertising programme – for which Pinsent Masons was awarded both "Managing IP Award's UK Trade Mark Litigation Team of the Year" and "The Lawyer's IP team of the Year".
