Position

Significant clients: Ibiza Rocks (a major lifestyle/live music/travel company); Triton Showers; the ‘Brabham’ racing family; KitchenCraft (leading kitchenwares company) and Abacus Lighting (major player in lighting for sports stadia). Matt works in a wide range of technical fields, and on a variety of patent and branding issues. A significant part of his practice covers trade marks in the UK and overseas, protecting personal names corporate identities and logos, with a particular interest in motorsport teams and drivers. Matt also has a particular interest in intellectual property litigation and dispute resolution. A large part of his responsibility lies in client development and acquisition – both at home and abroad – which means that he has been lucky enough to travel widely. Specifically, he has been closely involved with intellectual property rights and enforcement in China, having visited the country regularly, and has added India to his field of activity. Matt has been an active participant in the Asian Patent Attorneys’ Association, which meets annually in various Far Eastern locations.
