Recent experience

What our clients say....

We instructed the Browne Jacobson team to advise and represent us in relation to a business critical project. We were consistently impressed with Mark Daniels’ outcome focussed advice, commercial acumen and commitment to achieving a very successful result for the business. Mark's team blended technical intellectual property expertise with clear communication, showing a genuine interest in a successful outcome. They were more than a match for the other legal advisors on the project. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark’s team.

We value our intellectual property highly. The single team at Browne Jacobson and Barker Brettell, led by Mark and Louis, ensures that the management and enforcement of our rights is joined up and frankly easier to manage.

Peter Johansen, former CEO, London EV Company Limited

I cannot thank them enough for their fantastic guidance and support through a truly traumatic time. Without their professional, speedy responses, my school could have had its reputation permanently damaged.
