Powell Gilbert LLP

We know IP inside and out, we have to, it’s central to everything we do. We are one of the largest, most innovative and highly regarded IP litigation and advisory teams in the United Kingdom.

With extensive litigation experience and lawyers who have strong scientific and technical backgrounds, we are uniquely positioned to address the complex and commercially critical IP matters faced by our clients. 

We work with knowledge, technology and brand-based industries, from start-ups to multinationals, across a broad range of sectors including pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, electronics, telecommunications, medical devices, energy technologies and consumer goods. Our experience ranges from acting in the earliest and most complex biotechnology patent cases, to advising on some of the largest telecoms disputes and enforcing trade mark rights against counterfeits in the luxury goods sector.

Our lawyers are at the forefront of the profession. Since our founding in 2007, we have been involved in many of the leading and highest-profile cases in the UK Patents Courts and have a wealth of experience gained from co-ordinating European litigation strategies. Our depth of experience and proven track record means that we are ideally placed to advise clients on European IP litigation strategy. Our lawyers are also helping to shape the future of IP law in Europe, including the preparations for the Unified Patent Court (UPC) and its Central Division dealing with Life Sciences patents in London, making us very well placed to advise on the changes that lie ahead.
