Working closely with in-house brand protection teams, Chris helps intellectual property (IP) conscious businesses to develop strategies to better protect and police their IP rights, both in the UK as well as further afield. This has resulted in clients establishing successful global anti-counterfeiting campaigns, online and offline.

Chris utilises his knowledge and experience in both worldwide IP protection and enforcement to think strategically for his clients. This creative and commercial approach has helped nurture fledging clients to international success, and has also resulted in securing work for some of the world’s biggest brands.
