Iain Stansfield has over 20 years' experience providing strategic advice to clients involved in the development, protection and exploitation of intellectual property. This includes brands, content and technology. His focus is on transactional and advisory work, and his clients are drawn in large part from the advertising and marketing, publishing and retail sectors.
Primarily a commercial lawyer, his background as an IP practitioner means that he brings to his transactional work a sharp awareness of how best to protect and maximise intangible assets.
Iain is also experienced in establishing and negotiating all the legal structures by which clients engage with their markets and trading partners, from licensing and R&D, through distribution, agency and supply chain, to joint ventures and disposals and acquisitions.
