Beck Greener News

We are very pleased to announce that Beck Greener has once again been ranked as a leading IP firm for both patent and trade mark matters in the latest edition of The Legal 500 directory rankings.

Commentary from the Legal 500 is below:

Beck Greener LLP has a strong track record in contentious trade mark matters, often involving an international element, and has demonstrable experience in opposition and cancellation proceedings before the UKIPO. The team acts for multinational companies across the media, entertainment, cosmetics and fashions sectors, as well as start-ups and SMEs, and counts anti-counterfeiting matters and design enforcement issues in its workload. “Rock star” Ian Bartlett leads the team and has experience before the UKIPO and Appointed Persons, while the team’s UK and EU filing and prosecution practice remains active with an office in Alicante, headed up by Rowland Buehrlen. Other key members of the team include Catherine Jewell, and associate trade mark attorneys Duncan Morgan, who is praised by one client as “simply tremendous”, and Kashif Syed.

Praised as a “highly skilled, friendly and reliable team”, Beck Greener LLP has a strong track record in contentious matters, notably patent oppositions and appeals before the EPO, and counts multinational corporates across the chemicals, engineering, technology, life sciences, pharmaceutical, artificial intelligence and automotive sectors among its key roster of clients. Avi Freeman, who has experience in handling patent prosecutions relating to computer hardware and software, leads the electronics, physics and mechanical engineering team, while James Stones heads up the chemical, pharmaceutical and chemical engineering group, and focuses on gas separation and green energy matters. Ben Muir spearheads the medical and life sciences practice, and handles original filing and prosecution matters in the UK, the US and at the EPO.
