"More than a match for more senior counsels."  Chambers and Partners 2021


Jamie specialises in intellectual property, media and entertainment.  He regularly appears in cases in the High Court, the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court and the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office as well as being instructed in cases proceeding in the Court of Appeal, the General Court and at the European Union Intellectual Property Office.

Since joining Hogarth Chambers, Jamie has been involved in the full range of intellectual property disputes, with his practice covering patents, trade marks, copyright, designs and confidential information.  He is a contributor to the CIPA Guide to the Patents Act.

Jamie completed a combined Bachelor of Arts and Master of Natural Sciences degree at the University of Cambridge, focussing on materials science.  Afterwards, Jamie remained at Cambridge to undertake a doctorate in materials science, looking at shape memory materials, and further postdoctoral research, creating metal foams for air batteries.

Jamie then left academia to spend 5 years working in the construction industry, initially assisting expert witnesses in a wide range of construction disputes and subsequently advising banks and other funders on risk in construction projects.  During this time, he completed a part time Master of Science degree in construction law and dispute resolution and a part time law degree.

His technical and commercial background provides Jamie with an ideal foundation for working on complex intellectual property disputes and enables him to take a pragmatic view of disputes.
