Michael advises clients on the commercialisation, monetisation and enforcement of intellectual property assets. He advises across a broad range of sectors including electronics, life sciences, transport and energy and has a strong interest in emerging technologies including AI and Additive Manufacturing.
“Michael Moore has acted for a remarkable array of companies…” and is described as “efficient, easy to get along with and down-to-earth” (IAM Patent 1000) and ‘first class in terms of service, knowledge and execution’ (Managing Intellectual Property IP Stars).
Michael leads Marks & Clerk’s growing commercial IP practice. With over 20 years’ experience advising clients on both litigious and commercial matters, he can apply his “first class… service, knowledge and execution” to undertake due diligence projects and negotiate and draft agreements dealing with the acquisition, sale and licensing of intellectual property rights across a range of industry sectors.
Michael also plays a key role in the firm’s patent litigation and dispute resolution practice and has acted in multi-jurisdictional patent disputes working with legal teams in Europe, the US, Japan and Korea relating to a range of technologies, from mobile and internet-based technologies and RFID devices to insulin-like growth factors.
Michael remains “down-to-earth” in part because of his young family and inability to turn down a challenge. Having completed 5 London Marathons, Michael recently took to two wheels to complete the 100 hour cycling challenge of 735km, with 12.8km of ascent, across the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean for the Cure Parkinson’s Trust charity.
