Powell Gilbert’s lawyers are supported by a dedicated paralegal and litigation support team. The team members have in depth experience of supporting all aspects of intellectual property litigation from the preparation of proceedings all the way through to trial within all instances of the English courts as well as the UKIPO, EPO and CJEU . The litigation support team is also closely involved in Powell Gilbert’s coordination of multijurisdictional disputes, assisting local counsel in countries from Brazil to China and across Europe, Japan and the US.
The team has broad experience of the issues which arise in intellectual property and technology disputes, from managing large scale disclosure exercises using electronic means, to liaising with the departments and registries of the courts and the EPO. In addition to being a resource for the larger cases, members of the team are involved also as a cost effective resource in smaller scale litigation.
In addition to European languages, the litigation support team includes native speakers of Cantonese and Mandarin.
