League table of UK IP lawyers

peer reviewIt’s that time of the year again, when IP Draughts presents his “poll of polls” on the best transactional IP lawyers in the UK.

As in previous years, the methodology is very simple. Identify the people who are listed on both the IAM Patent 1000 list of recommended UK licensing lawyers, and the Chambers Directory list of recommended UK life science lawyers. The latter list was published earlier today.

Selecting people who feature in both lists has the advantage of weeding out some corporate lawyers who feature on the Chambers list. It also omits a few people who appear on the IAM list, whom IP Draughts rates highly, but you can’t have everything. IP Draughts thinks the result is a reasonably reliable list of genuine specialists in transactional IP with a technology focus.

The list comprises, in alphabetical order:

Laura Anderson – Bristows

Mark Anderson – Anderson Law

Malcom Bates – Taylor Wessing

Richard Binns – Simmons & Simmons

Allistair Booth – Pinsent Masons

Patrick Duxbury – Wragges

Jim Ford – Allen & Overy

Michael Gavey – Simmons & Simmons

Sarah Hanson – CMS Cameron McKennanot bad

Gary Howes – Faskens

Mark Lubbock – Ashursts

Nicola Maguire – Reed Smith

Lucinda Osborne – Covington & Burling

Daniel Pavin – Covington & Burling

Stephen Reese – Olswang

John Wilkinson – Reed Smith
