What can Alex do for you?

Alex helps businesses to devise and implement intellectual property strategies. He has been a specialist intellectual property lawyer for more than 20 years, and has learned a lot along the way. He combines technical expertise with commercial awareness and makes return on investment the key focus of his thinking, advice and the way he operates.

Supporting your ambitions

Alex tries to turn intellectual property disputes into commercial opportunities for his clients. He knows that IP disputes rarely have certain outcomes, and that the financial and other remedies which the courts can award to a successful IP litigant will rarely justify the financial and time investment which prolonged litigation demands. Despite this, he regularly sees businesses (and their lawyers) fight to the bitter end just to prove that their legal position is the correct one, regardless of the commercial costs and consequences. He prefers to seek swift, pragmatic, fair and (ideally) creative outcomes, and enjoys the challenge of finding them.

What do others say?

"Alex Newman is exceptional. His strategic thinking and focus on the key elements is a real asset. Alex assesses IP matters and looks for the commercial solution while keeping options open for trial. Overall, Alex’s ability to understand IP cases quickly and to plan for the long-term case management is marvellous."

What else should you know?

Alex specialises in intellectual property law because he likes learning about new technologies, and because he likes helping the creators and users of new technologies to identify and exploit the commercial opportunities which those new technologies provide. He also likes rolling his sleeves up, getting stuck in, and finding whatever provides the key advantage in a dispute or negotiation.
