Edwin Coe is delighted to announce that Head of Intellectual Property, Simon Miles, will be speaking today at the 35th European Communities Trade Mark Association (ECTA) conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Simon will be providing a UK perspective with regards to the award of damages in trade mark cases. The Working Programme will start today and finish on Friday with the emphasis on the coming into force of the EU legislative package trade mark reform.

Simon has worked with a number of major global companies in creating, exploiting and protecting their brands. He also has considerable experience in sports law, having advised governing bodies, clubs and individuals on rights protection, sponsorship and database rights.

Simon has been involved in numerous significant reported cases in relation to trade mark, patent, copyright and database right infringement and is regularly recommended by clients for his contentious expertise.
