Luke specialises in contentious intellectual property matters. He has a particular interest in patent litigation, but advises on a range of intellectual property rights in the technology, media & telecommunications sectors. His first degree was in computer science, which assists him with understanding the technical and engineering aspects of the underlying intellectual property involved in a dispute.
Luke has advised on a number of first instance actions and appeals, primarily in the High Court, and has been involved in a wide gamut of interim applications. Many of those cases have involved multi-jurisdictional disputes, requiring a high degree of co-ordination at both a strategic and a practical level. He has also provided pre-action advice in a number of cases, leading to successful settlements without the need for litigation.
His cases have involved a variety of technical fields, including mobile technology, computing, consumer electronics, linear accelerators and networking/communications systems.
Luke is a professional member of the British Computer Society and a member of the Society for Computers & Law.
