Powell Gilbert is ranked in the top 10 in Intellectual Property Law


London-based IP boutique POWELL GILBERT is internationally renowned for its expertise in highly complex patent litigation. What the law firm lacks in size, it more than makes up for in the depth of experience and technical know-how of its practitioners, demonstrated by the fact that many of its lawyers have scientific backgrounds and a number hold PhDs. Impressively, all seven of its partners are listed in our patents or life sciences: patent litigation guides. Among the firm’s highest-profile clients are Actavis, GlaxoSmithKline’s Human Genome Sciences, Genentech, HTC and Procter & Gamble.

Co-founder Penny Gilbert consistently appears on our “Most Highly Regarded” list for life sciences patent litigation. She is “a phenomenon” and “one of the life sciences market’s foremost litigators due to her unrivalled technical and strategic abilities”, according to feedback. Co-founder Tim Powell is referred to as “a grandee of the IP bar” and is universally well known among his peers. He has acted on a number of the most high profile patent infringement cases in Europe, including Apple v Nokia and Pharmacia v Merck.
