Keystone Law snaps up Will Sander


Keystone Law has hired intellectual property solicitor and trademark attorney Will Sander.

Sander joins Keystone from Bond Dickinson, where he served as managing associate.

His practice covers the protection, monitoring and exploitation of IP across various commercial, corporate and litigation matters, such as trademark law, patent law, design law, copyright law, and the use and protection of confidential information.

Sander has dealt with matters in the UK’s Trade Mark Registry, the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court and the High Court, as well as through the European Union’s Intellectual Property Office, including its appeal bodies and courts.

He has also handled a range of cross-border matters throughout Europe, North America, South America and Australasia.

James Knight, founder and managing director of Keystone Law, said: “Will Sander is an excellent strategic addition to our IP practice. His significant expertise within trade marks and designs, along with his strong global business relationships, will enhance our capabilities in this area.”
