About Powell GilbertOur lawyers have technical backgrounds, and combined with our wealth of experience and practical know-how, it means we grasp issues quickly and without wasting time. We have experience right across the spectrum of IP litigation, gained from acting in cases across a wide range of technologies and industries. This experience ranges from acting in the earliest biotechnology patent cases technically advising on complex telecoms disputes to enforcing trade mark rights against counterfeit goods in the fashion and luxury goods sectors. We have acted in cases involving products as diverse as DNA microarrays, computer software, pharmaceutical blockbusters, petrochemicals, semi-conductors, mobile phones, perfume and razorblades. We have represented clients in the UK Patents Courts, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court (formerly the House of Lords) and the European Court of Justice. We have assisted in cases before many overseas courts including in continental Europe, Scandinavia, the US, Australia and Japan. We are frequently involved in European Patent Office opposition proceedings and in representing clients in contentious matters before the UK and European trade mark registries.
