Dr Paul England is senior counsel – knowledge, in our Patents Group. He is an English qualified lawyer of over 20 years who specialises in advising on case theory and European strategic work for contentious patent matters, including in the Unified Patent Court, usually at the beginning of a dispute or potential dispute.
