Dominic Harris (Head of Portfolio Management at Calculus Capital)

I had the pleasure of working with John and Justin on a complex legal dispute involving the misappropriation of IP by the former senior management team of a UK biotech company.

Their extensive experience and magic circle pedigree were evident from the outset and their grasp of the array of issues underpinning the dispute, how they anticipated the dispute unfolding and the proposed strategy focusing on the pertinent issues at every turn, was highly impressive.

The clarity and quality of the advice was consistently excellent and successive written submissions exceptional. This was allied to realistic and sensible budgets and timetables with distinct allocation of responsibilities and an unswerving commitment to the cause, always with good humour and personability.

As a corporate, whatever the size, the old adage about it always being preferable to avoid legal actions runs true. However, such disputes and related actions are sometimes unavoidable and when they are and incorporate any aspect of IP rights, there are no better lawyers than John and Justin to have alongside and go into proverbial bat for you to achieve the most optimal outcome.
