Ben King

 

Ben trained at a leading global IP firm, and has recently completed the University of Oxford PGDip in Intellectual Property Law and Practise. He is experienced in drafting, reviewing and negotiating IP licences, software and SaaS agreements, supply and manufacturing contracts, and a wide range of other commercial agreements. He has undertaken brand protection work for national and international clients, including helping to manage brand protection programs for a global bank and a leading UK fast food restaurant chain. Ben has also advised multinationals and UK companies on a range of product compliance matters, including CE and UKCA marking, product labelling and CBD regulation.

He enjoys working as closely as possible with clients to understand their business and their motivations, having spent time on secondment with a generics pharmaceutical company, a rapidly-growing biotech company, and in the IP team of an international bank. Before retraining as a solicitor Ben served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force for 12 years. He prides himself on being proactive, commercially-focused and approachable.
