Innovative London law firm, iLaw, has sought to expand its existing intellectual property expertise with the appointment of a dedicated Trade Mark Attorney, Andrew Murch.
To celebrate Andrew’s arrival at the firm, iLaw are offering a free initial consultation with him and the intellectual property team, which can be arranged by calling 0203 962 2230.
Andrew joins the firm having held several senior positions at other law firms across London and the South East, where he has assisted with a wide range of national and international trade mark registrations, clearances and protection.
Well known within the profession, Andrew has worked on several high-profile cases and successfully argued the widely reported High Court decision in the case of Etat Francais representee par la Ministere de L’Agriculture de la Foret v Bernard Matthews Plc.
He is the latest in a number of recent appointments by the firm as it seeks to broaden its expertise to assist its clients in the fields of technology, media, telecoms and the various other innovative industries with which the firm works.
iLaw already has a considerable background in intellectual property but felt the addition of Andrew to its team would further strengthen its standing in the City.
Speaking about his appointment, Andrew said: “iLaw has carved out a reputation as an excellent intellectual property practice and has worked on several high-profile cases relating to trade marks and their protection, as well as other areas such as copyright.
“I am delighted to be joining this firm with its forward-thinking approach to the provision of legal services and I hope my expertise and advice will prove useful to the growing number of clients that it serves.”
As well as providing advice to clients, Andrew has previously lent his expertise to publications and even spent time on Kent Business Radio providing advice to listeners on their intellectual property issues. Andrew is also a part-qualified UK Patent Attorney.
Mark Culbert, a Managing Director at iLaw, added: “We are very excited to be welcoming Andrew to our practice. He has considerable experience across a variety of areas relating to intellectual property and I am certain he will be a real asset to our strong team of legal professionals.”
