Senior Associate

I am a senior associate in Fox Williams' intellectual property team. I have advised clients on all types of intellectual property matters including trade marks, passing off, registered and unregistered designs, copyright, and patents, as well as confidential information and domain name disputes.

Scott joined Fox Williams in September 2018 and became a Senior Associate in May 2022. Scott advises clients on both contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters and has been the lead associate on cases brought in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court, the High Court and the Court of Appeal. This has included the well-publicised Court of Appeal case against Bentley Motors, and the High Court claim brought by Superdry against Manchester City. Scott acts for clients in numerous sectors including in technology (Scott has a particular interest in AI and has written articles for Fox Williams), fashion, publishing and travel. Scott also advises clients in relation to trade mark and design filings, overcoming registration issues and trade mark oppositions and cancellations.

Scott is rated as a Rising Star 2023 on IP Stars, has a Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law from Oxford University, and speaks Spanish at an advanced level. Scott regularly gives presentations and presented in Fox Williams’ first podcast.

Prior to joining Fox Williams, Scott completed his training contract at the London office of a US law firm before qualifying in September 2016 as an IP lawyer and working for a specialist IP law firm.
