Practice notes


Brexit and the legal implications for businessesAndrew specialises in intellectual property issues, brand protection, reputation management, media related work, advertising, marketing and sponsorship arrangements, all on both a contentious and non-contentious basis. He is described as “excellent” by the Legal 500 guide to legal practitioners in the UK.

Andrew regularly advises on all aspects of trade marks, copyright, design rights, passing off, media rights, advertising, anti-counterfeiting, online disputes, defamation and privacy.

Andrew supports clients though all stages of the creation, development and use of new brands and products, including IP portfolio management, clearing advertising, negotiating high profile sponsorship arrangements (including for the Olympics and the Tour De France) and the creation and licensing of merchandising. He has particular experience in dealing with social media issues, ASA challenges and comparative advertising, media buying agreements, advertising agency agreements, and influencer agreements on social media.

Once launched, Andrew has many years’ experience in helping clients protect their brands and enforce their IP rights. He has extensive High Court experience, acting in high profile litigation for major clients, dealing with trade marks, passing off, copyright and designs. However, much of his work is focussed on providing strategic advice to clients so that they can deal with IP and media disputes without the need for litigation.

A notable aspect of Andrew’s expertise is that he also has many years of experience advising on defamation, privacy and reputation management issues. This is for a wide range of clients across many sectors, both by way of preventative action and involvement in post-publication disputes. He has obtained numerous privacy injunctions to protect clients and acted in major defamation disputes. Much of his work in this area involves negotiating with press, television and social media organisations.

Andrew is regularly quoted in the press and provides training in these areas to clients.

He studied at Hertford College, Oxford, completed his professional examinations at the College of Law in London and joined Eversheds Sutherland in 1999. Andrew also has a Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice from Bristol University.
