Partner Lateral Hire to Trade Mark Practice
We are pleased to announce the arrival of Matthew Dick, who joins the firm's trade mark practice as partner. Matthew was previously at law firm Bristows.
Matthew specialises in all areas of brands-related law and litigation, with a particular focus on trade marks. He has represented both small and multi-national clients from a wide variety of industries, providing a full-service offering: from the development and clearance of new brands, to registration strategy, use and exploitation in the marketplace and ultimately enforcement, all on a worldwide basis. Matthew has advised clients in relation to ASA complaints, UDRP proceedings relating to domain names and disputes before OHIM, the CJEU, the UKIPO and the English High Court. He also advises clients on copyright and design issues.
Matthew has advised world-famous brands owners including the world's largest public service broadcasting corporation and a renowned global advertising, marketing and communications services group.
Matthew's arrival strengthens D Young & Co's trade mark practice, which has been ranked top tier by Managing Intellectual Property magazine for the last six years and by the Legal 500 directory for the last 11 years. As a solicitor specialising in brands-related law, Matthew's experience is unique given that his day to day practice includes advising clients on the full range of trade mark portfolio management, involving the creation, development, registration and on-going protection of brands throughout the world , normally the exclusive territory of trade mark attorneys.
He will be also working closely with the firm's Dispute Resolution Group in relation to litigation matters, given his on-going expertise as a solicitor in this field.
Jeremy Pennant, Head of Trade Marks says; "We are delighted with Matthew's arrival. With his unique background, he will be able to work closely with both our trade mark attorneys and solicitors, offering clients a genuinely one-stop service."
