Greg is a contentious IP specialist whose advice covers the full range of IP rights and extends across all industries. He also advises on wider issues relevant to the life sciences sector.

Greg’s particular focus is on patent litigation in the life sciences sector (pharmaceuticals, biotech and medical devices) and copyright litigation (various media).  He has extensive experience of acting before both the English High Court and Court of Appeal.  In addition, Greg is also involved in strategic multinational litigation through global pharmaceutical product coordination projects for one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, where he manages IP litigation in relation to blockbuster drugs in a range of jurisdictions.  Greg's extensive scientific background gives him a valuable understanding of technical issues that can underlie IP matters, particularly in the life sciences field.

Greg has spent time on secondment to the UK legal department of a leading global healthcare IT company, gaining valuable experience of non-contentious IP/IT and commercial matters.  Greg is also a regular contributor to the monthly EPO reports which Bristows produce for the CIPA Journal.
