Event description

Description

This event is jointly organised by A*STAR Legal and LES Singapore

Speaker: Gordon Harris

The speaker is the head of international IP at Gowling WLG UK, Gordon Harris. He will be talking about the recent development in the UK to adopt the US position on patent law to allow the doctrine of equivalents and how this will impact market players.




Speaker's Profile

Gordon conducts litigation in all UK and European Courts for clients seeking to protect their IP, or those who have been accused of infringing other people's rights. He is known as a fighter who will explore every avenue to get the right result, including, going to the Supreme Court to change over 100 years of patent law in order to ensure the right outcome for a client. He has conducted ground-breaking cases on designs and brands in the European Court of Justice, and contested the validity of patents in the European Patent Office.

He has over 30 years' experience in IP and is involved in law reform and development through various committees and organisations. All of which allows him to provide decisive commercial advice to clients and to help them to decide the best avenue to take in any given case. As a qualified mediator accredited by CEDR and the World Intellectual Property Organisation, Gordon also pursues alternative dispute resolution both on behalf of clients and as a mediator.

World Trademark Review recognised Gordon in the 2017 edition of its prestigious annual guide, WTR 1000, for enforcement and litigation. Gordon was recognised as a 'patent star' in the IP Stars guide 2017.
