Patents & Patent Litigation
Danny is an associate in our Intellectual Property team, with a specific focus on contentious intellectual property matters.
He advises clients on the full spectrum of intellectual property rights, including patents, trade marks, designs, and copyright. Danny has particular experience advising clients in the retail, engineering, brewing, education, technology, online and social media, and IT sectors.
Danny’s work typically involves advising on, drafting and responding to cease and desist letters, settlement agreements, trade mark oppositions, revocations and cancellations, and preparing legal proceedings (acting for both claimants and defendants).
He has enjoyed recent success in the courts, including in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (Claydon Yield-O-Meter v Mzuri ) and the High Court (Coloplast v Salts ). He also has experience in advising on and preparing cases to be heard at the UK Intellectual Property Office Trade Mark Tribunal, and the Nominet UK Domain Name Dispute Resolution Service.
Danny has recently completed the Oxford University Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law. He is also a contributor to publications including Lawyer Monthly, and provides external webinars on IP topics of interest.
Outside of work, Danny is a keen football, music, beer and film fan – all of which being closely linked to intellectual property rights (and disputes).
I enjoy putting my experience, interest and knowledge of IP law and its related industries to use by assisting clients and developing innovative solutions to problems they encounter when looking to protect, exploit and enforce their rights.
