He is a member of the Intellectual Property practice and covers all aspects of intellectual property law, with a particular focus on trade mark and copyright disputes, increasingly within an online and/or digital context.

    Ben is experienced in managing complex, multi-jurisdictional IP disputes on behalf of some of the world’s best-known brands and has counseled clients in actions before the English High Court and Court of Appeal, as well as the Court of Justice of the European Union. Select clients include the world’s leading technology company, an American multinational financial services corporation, a well-known social media platform, a cigarette manufacturer, luxury luggage and watch manufacturers, the world’s most famous producer of automotive air-fresheners, and a manufacturer of fine china and porcelain accessories.

    In 2020, Ben was recognised by World Trademark Review’s WTR 1000 for enforcement and litigation. The publication cites his “no-nonsense advice” and describes him as “unflappable” and “an outstanding lawyer and IP specialist” who “is especially potent when enforcing European trademarks.” WTR 1000 focuses exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners, and is viewed by many as the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark practitioners.
