Powell Gilbert secures ranking in World Trademark Review 2016:
Uniquely specialised IP litigation shop Powell Gilbert is a go-to destination for companies needing penetrating strategic guidance and decisive representation in must-win disputes. Patent litigation is the area in which it is best known – its technically astute lawyers consistently push at the boundaries of patent law.

“Ayrton is a true expert in almost all aspects of intellectual property. On top of that, he is very service oriented and practically minded.”
