Tim Powell and Penny Gilbert are recommended as “Leading Individuals”
Powell Gilbert LLP fields a ‘high-end team’: ‘superb’, ‘outstanding’ and ‘for patent work, there is no firm better’. The ‘particularly recommended’ Anna Carboni, formerly a barrister with a trade marks focus at Wilberforce Chambers and dual qualified as a solicitor advocate, has now joined the team. Simon Ayrton is also a ‘real thought leader in trade marks’. Tim Powell is a ‘first-class patent litigator and a great tactician’, and Penny Gilbert acted for Human Genome Sciences against Eli Lilly in the first case in which the Supreme Court has considered in detail the requirement for ‘industrial application’ of a patent.
