Greg specialises primarily in patent litigation with a focus on the life sciences sector (pharmaceuticals, biotech and medical devices).  He has extensive experience of acting before both the English High Court (Patents Court) and Court of Appeal.  Greg's extensive scientific background gives him a valuable understanding of technical issues that can underlie IP matters, particularly in the life sciences field.

In addition, Greg has a wealth of experience of strategic multinational litigation in multiple jurisdictions through global pharmaceutical product coordination projects for many clients. As a result, he has in-depth knowledge of European patent litigation and has attended preliminary injunction and main action proceedings in multiple countries throughout Europe, as well as oppositions at the EPO. 

Greg is a regular contributor to the monthly EPO reports which Bristows produce for the CIPA Journal and writes on UK cases for a number of IP blogs. He is also the editor of the Bristows On the Pulse microsite, one of the editors of our Biotech Review publication, and co-authored the UK chapter of the AIPLA’s International Patent Litigation guide. 

Greg regularly advises clients on the potential impact of the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court and the strategies they should adopt. He has also spent time on secondment to the IP litigation department of a leading IP law firm in the Netherlands.  Greg is a member of AIPPI.
