Ben brings a pragmatic, outcome-focused approach to life sciences transactions, intellectual property licensing agreements and regulatory work across a range of sectors.

Ben is an associate in our Intellectual Property practice, based in London.

Ben has gained experience on a range of transactional and contentious work. In particular, he has been involved in a wide variety of IP licensing and transactional matters, international pharmaceutical supply agreements and brand management work (including trade mark, copyright and domain name protection). He has has assisted in providing regulatory advice - often coordinating the provision of advice from Bird & Bird's international offices - across several sectors, including pharmaceuticals, labelling, advertising, packaging and WEEE. He has also worked on several high-value disputes, including assisting a FTSE-100 tech company in a £40m royalty claim arbitration against the UK MoD. 

Ben has also recently also been involved in advising several clients in relation to regulatory issues around hemp, CBD and other cannabis derivatives, and is very interested in this rapidly growing new market.

In 2016 Ben was seconded to a large international bank, gaining experience of contentious and non-contentious IP matters in the financial sector. He is currently on virtual secondment to a UK pharmaceutical company, providing a range of legal assistance to their commercial and scientific teams one day a week.
