Dan joined the firm in 2022 after working within a private office at the heart of Government. Alongside his previous role, Dan completed both the MSc in Management of Intellectual Property and the Postgraduate Certificate in Intellectual Property Law at Queen Mary University of London. Whilst Dan was first introduced to IP during his undergraduate Chemistry course at the University of Bath, it was his postgraduate studies, including partaking in the pro bono ‘qLegal’ scheme, that fostered his strong interest in trade mark law.
Dan assists a wide range of clients from individuals to multinational corporations in relation to trade mark matters in the UK, EU, and worldwide. Dan works with clients across a variety of commercial sectors, including engineering, food and beverage, entertainment, travel, and financial services.
Dan is regularly involved with advising on the availability and registrability of proposed trade marks; filing trade mark applications; advising on, filing, and defending oppositions; advising on infringement matters; preparing settlement agreements; and attending to trade mark assignments and recordal exercises.
Dan assists the associates and partners at the firm with all aspects of trade mark law, but especially enjoys helping clients overcome difficult obstacles on the path to securing a trade mark registration. Dan also has a particular interest in handling contentious matters, and has experience in assisting to obtain favourable outcomes.
