“Browne Jacobson always goes the extra mile. It is practical, pragmatic, commercial and realistic in its support – whether it is a small query or a substantive matter, its work is always of the highest standard.” The outfit tackles contentious and transactional mandates with equal aplomb, priding itself on its ability to manage cases in any technological area – software, the automotive field, sportswear and 3D printing all count among the industries it has worked within lately. Leading on the disputes side is high-technology expert Mark Daniels, who receives effusive plaudits from his clients: “Mark always provides clear, commercially focused advice and always takes the time to understand the client’s commercial aims and explain the various options available. His subsequent advice is always clearly explained and he never loses sight of the original commercial goals.” Working at his side is Giles Parsons, who combines his contentious expertise with a knack for portfolio management and negotiating deals. According to one patron: “Giles held my hand and steered me through the process. His organisation was good, as was his knowledge, thus I was confident that we were doing a good job.” Fronting the transactional practice meanwhile is Selina Hinchliffe, who neatly ties up deals – primarily in the energy, technology and university sectors. She is well known for her ability to translate issues into layman’sterms.
