Gregor Grant

Gregor Grant is an experienced hands-on patent litigator. In 2005 he became a partner in Marks & Clerk Law and now has an active consulting role in the firm. He was previously the co-founder of a specialist IP practice, Needham & Grant.

Gregor is cited in Managing Intellectual Property’s ‘IP Stars’ 2016 guide, which describes him as “one of the stellar practitioners of his generation. In the 2016 Chambers UK directory, he is described as “a seasoned patent disputes specialist and much respected in the market”. He is recommended in the IAM Patent 1000 2016 guide as “a true luminary on the market”, and in 2015 as "a touchstone for incisive strategic advice".

He has been involved in a huge number of patent cases across a wide spectrum of technology – cases which he has handled include those in the fields of clinical diagnostics, stents and implants, pharmaceuticals and therapeutic antibodies, hydraulic lifting machines, high pressure valves, machine tools, food technology and electric motors. Many of these have had a multi-jurisdictional aspect.

Gregor plays keyboard in the firm’s rock band and elsewhere, and also enjoys sketching, cooking and the pleasures of the table.
