“Stationed in London and Munich, Gill Jennings & Every’s squad of patent professionals wins widespread acclaim for its astute, commercially focused advice on routine prosecution briefs and splendid record in oppositions and appeals at the EPO.
Recent successes on behalf of Focusrite Audio Engineering highlight the firm’s contentious acumen, while also displaying its strength in international litigation support: it worked closely alongside US counsel to counter infringement proceedings brought before US courts and defended an invalidity application at the EU Intellectual Property Office which resulted in maximum costs being awarded against the opposing party. Taking the reins on these matters was partner Peter Finnie, whose effective guidance – particularly in the IT and telecommunications sectors – ensures that start-ups and major corporations alike can maximise the value of their intellectual property.
Chair of the firm since 2014, Robert Skone James is also a font of telecommunications knowledge who has earned the trust of clients worldwide in their pursuit of ironclad protection.
A driving force behind much of the firm’s contentious success, Lucy Samuels is a standout performer whose accomplishments at the EPO speak for themselves.
Optics and software buff Peter Arrowsmith’s forward-looking practice focuses on cutting-edge areas such as augmented reality and artificial intelligence.
Debuting in the IAM Patent 1000 for 2018, the ‘solution-seeking and highly responsive’ Fiona Stevens is a ‘superb patent practitioner’ whose in-depth knowledge of the field is fed by a true interest in the subject. ‘Her opinions are always insightful and underpinned by substantive data’.”
