Marcus is an intellectual property lawyer at Marks & Clerk Law who advises clients on a wide range of IP rights, with a focus on patent litigation in the life sciences sector.
Before moving into law, Marcus worked for five years in pharmaceutical market research, developing and managing national and international projects in various medical fields. This experience, combined with Marcus’ biotechnology and genetics background, allows him to quickly grasp the key technical and commercial issue of disputes and transactions seen in science-based industries.
Marcus trained and qualified as a solicitor at a leading international law firm and joined Marks & Clerk Law in September 2016. Outside work, Marcus’ interests include rugby, global politics, geocaching and cooking (much to his family’s delight).
