Dentons to launch patent prosecution and opposition practice


Law firm Dentons is launching a patent prosecution and opposition practice in the UK, following its recruitment of attorneys from Olswang.

The team, led by partner Justin Hill, will join Dentons in May.

The eight-strong team includes counsel Alexander Rees, senior patent attorneys Marie Jansson and Dr Louis Trichard, and patent attorney Gemma Sparrow.

Trainee patent attorney Naznin Sheikh, senior docketing clerk Michael Folan and paralegal Paul McEvaddy will also join the firm.

Dentons UK managing partner Brandon Ransley said: “Our objective as a firm is to build a leading global patent capability. We already have a very strong patent litigation and prosecution practice in the US."

"Clients from North America and Asia increasingly require patent advice in Europe and the arrival of Justin and the team will immediately propel us into a major patent player in this very important market.”
