"Blake Morgan’s in-depth understanding of the charities sector sets it apart on the highly competitive UK trademark scene. It strikes a fine balance, representing non-profits in a commercially astute way, but without being heavy handed – a feat that it repeats for its many public sector and higher-education patrons. It acts for a slew of heavyweight corporates too, including the likes of leading online sports retailer Wiggle and cosmetics e-business feelunique. Operating flawlessly across the contentious/non-contentious divide, it has cultivated a well-balanced practice, making it a cost-effective out-of-London destination for one-stop shopping. Jill Bainbridge garners rave reviews for her astute management of the IP group and trademark prosecution unit. Barristers comment that “she has a great feel for litigation” and “knows how it all works”, and praise her “sensible” advice and sweeping IP know-how. “She also has good juniors backing her up” – one of whom is rising star Ben Evans. The dual-qualified solicitor and trademark attorney is “practical, business minded and timely, and represents good value for money”."
