National law firm Bond Dickinson has appointed leading intellectual property solicitor Patrick Cantrill as a partner.  

Patrick joins Bond Dickinson from Walker Morris, where he built the firm’s IP offering from scratch and went on to head its highly regarded intellectual property department. He has nearly 30 years of expertise gained from working both in UK and overseas practices and of managing IP portfolios for blue chip and international organisations.

He has extensive experience in both contentious and non-contentious IP and media law matters with a strong reputation for handling major and cross-border IP litigation. He has been involved successfully in a number of high-profile patent, design and trademark cases.  

Nick Page, chairman of Bond Dickinson, commented: ‘We are extremely pleased to announce Patrick’s appointment as a partner in our IP department. He is one of the most accomplished lawyers in his field and he will be a first rate addition to our intellectual property and media practice.

‘We look forward to working with him as we develop our presence in London and internationally.’

Patrick said: ‘I am delighted to be joining Bond Dickinson. It is an exciting time for the merged firm which already boasts an impressive client roster as it expands to fulfil its national and international ambitions.’
