Mishcon de Reya is pleased to announce that Justin Lambert joined the firm's Intellectual Property team as Of Counsel on 20 February 2022.
Justin joins from his boutique litigation firm, Lambert Hornby, and is a dual-qualified solicitor in Australia and the United Kingdom, with over 20 years of experience in intellectual property matters in both jurisdictions. He is recognised as a leading patent lawyer and has handled a large variety of contentious patent, trade mark, copyright and design cases.
