Beck Greener LLP‘s distinguishing features include its extensive experience in the publishing, entertainment and cosmetics sectors, its role as one of the most active representatives in UKIPO hearings, and its combined prosecution and litigation offering. Practice head Ian Bartlett, a trade mark attorney whose training as a barrister is an asset in the group’s complex disputes, expertly handles with trade mark, copyright and design matters – he is known for being ‘superb at gaining clients’ confidence, understanding their commercial needs, and exceeding expectations‘. The group’s portfolio includes anti-counterfeiting matters and rights enforcement and a very active UK and EU filing practice, handled post-Brexit through the firm’s Alicante office where Rowland Buehrlen is the key contact. With a client roster that includes many well-known multinationals as well as UK-based small and medium-sized enterprises and sole traders, the practice is equally at home in cross-border matters as it is in domestic trade mark prosecution issues. John Raynor switched from a senior partner role to a consultant position in April 2020.
