Henry Ward

 


Year of call: 2000

Henry Ward has a BA and M.Eng. in Engineering from Emmanuel College, Cambridge, specialising in civil and mechanical engineering. A member of Middle Temple and an Astbury Scholar, he was called to the Bar in 2000. He previously served in the Queen's Gurkha Engineers in Hong Kong, Brunei and Nepal.

Henry's practice covers many aspects of intellectual property law, including patents, copyright and designs, trade marks and confidential information. His background is in engineering, and particularly civil, mechanical, petroleum and offshore engineering, but he deals with a wide range of technical subject matter. Henry’s practice has covered almost all areas of both “hard” and “soft” IP cases – from biotech and electronic patents cases to reality TV disputes. He has appeared in all UK forums up to and including the Court of Appeal, and has experience of the Supreme Court and the European Patent Office both in the Opposition Division and the Technical Board of Appeal. He has also advised on and represented clients at numerous mediations.

Henry has invaluable experience of extremely lengthy and complex trial work, having acted in the Ultraframe v Burnden dispute which occupied 100 days of court time. However he also has a great deal of experience in relation to far smaller disputes, including extensive experience of the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court.
