Powell Gilbert is one of the UK’s leading law firms specialising in intellectual property litigation and advisory work. The firm is recognised as top tier for patent litigation in the life sciences sector, its lawyers having been involved in precedent-setting, highly complex pharma, biotech and medical device cases for decades.
With a successful record before the UK Patents Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court, and in referrals to the European Court of Justice, the team frequently advises on dispute resolution strategy and supports multinational litigation across Europe, in coordination with other jurisdictions.
All the firm’s lawyers have technical backgrounds, ranging from immunology, biochemistry and chemical engineering to molecular biology and computer sciences. Combined with its European litigation experience this makes Powell Gilbert ideally placed to assist clients in the forthcoming Unified Patents Court (UPC), with its Life Sciences Central division due to be based in London.
