Leading regional law firm, Howes Percival, has further expanded its Intellectual Property and Information Technology team in Milton Keynes with the appointment of Victoria Howe who joins as a solicitor.
Vicki advises on a broad range of contentious and non-contentious IP/IT matters including trade mark applications, designs, trade mark and copyright infringement and contractual issues. Vicki trained with Howes Percival and has previously spent six months with the IP/IT team as a trainee.
Commenting on her appointment, James Howarth (Milton Keynes IP/IT partner) said, “I am delighted to welcome Vicki back to Howes Percival. This is really exciting time to join the team in Milton Keynes – we are making a really strong impact upon the local market in addition to bringing in high end IP work from contacts and clients across the Thames Valley region and London.”
Howes Percival’s Milton Keynes IP/IT team has particular expertise in the publishing and manufacturing sectors, and according to the Legal 500 directory, “excels in disputes involving copyright, trade marks, patents, database and other IP rights”. In addition to providing expert and sensible legal advice and representation, the firm works closely with various other organisations to offer an innovative and holistic approach towards protecting the brand and intellectual assets of its clients. In addition to advising on IP/IT legal issues and handling complex litigation, the team also manages trade mark portfolios, advises on data issues (including the pending GDPR) and recovers domain names for its clients.
Recently the firm became a member of the Silverstone Technology Cluster, not-for-profit organisation to support the growth of the high-tech cluster in and around the Milton Keynes area.
We are delighted to welcome Vicki back to the IP/IT team and excited to be expanding our capability in Milton Keynes where we believe there is huge potential to support growing businesses in the region on contentious and non-contentious IP/IT matters.
