J A Kemp Recruits New Partner to its Litigation Team

J A Kemp has announced the appointment of John Hornby to its litigation team. John is an experienced solicitor advocate who has had a long and illustrious career including over 14 years as a partner within the Intellectual Property Group at Clifford Chance LLP.

John’s patent litigation practice has involved disputes between parties in a wide variety of sectors including pharma; biotech; chemical; semi-conductor design and manufacture; satellite communications; and mechanical/electromechanical. He has also acted in trade mark disputes ranging from modest UKIPO oppositions to hard-fought High Court passing-off cases.

The firm also has over 40 attorneys registered to represent clients at the Unified Patent Court (UPC).
