Young intellectual property boutique Powell Gilbert’s early success is recognised by the market, with two of its partners recommended as leading patent attorneys. Penny Gilbert is considered brilliant technically and legally, with a focus on the bio pharmaceuticals sector. “She is excellent. I really couldn’t speak any higher of her, and I’ve been 40 years in patents,” says one client. Gilbert handles multi-jurisdiction patent litigation, and represents clients in UK Patent Office, European Patent Court oppositions and appeals.
Tim Powell is also considered a leading litigator in all courts, and is familiar with global cases. “He is very good at putting people at ease, he staffs a good team, he is very much engaged,” says one pharmaceuticals client. “Working with him is very easy going, clients don’t feel stressed, and he is always on top of the work.”
