A hugely experienced intellectual property lawyer, specialising in technology-related issues.

Background: Ian trained at Pinsent Curtis, before moving to Wragge & Co. Waving farewell to his Midlands homeland, he next spent seven years at Osborne Clarke, before joining us in 2007.

In practice: As well as continuing to be an active member of the commercial team, Ian has now taken on responsibility for business development across the firm as whole. He will continue for work for clients but will also be focused on client care and new business.

In his own words: "We have a great firm and a brilliant team. Our offering is deliberately different but our clients love it. I’m very excited about getting our message out to new clients and growing the business."

In his spare time: Ian is a Bears season ticket holder and rides his bike increasingly slowly.
