Partner at Carpmaels & Ransford LLP

He has represented clients in some of the United Kingdom’s largest patent cases (including successfully acting for his clients all the way up to the Supreme Court in what is now the leading UK case on claim construction). Mr Wilson also has particular expertise in litigating patent-related disputes where these arise in the context of existing licence agreements and in negotiating high-value licences and settlement agreements for his clients.
