Chair at Reddie & Grose LLP
Alice Findlay has over 30 years’ experience in advising clients on trademark, design and patent matters and is the partnership chair at Reddie & Grose.
Ms Findlay’s trademark clients include a number whose marks are household names. She handles clearing marks for use, through to filing and inter partes issues pre and post-registration. When working with both trademarks and designs, Ms Findlay regularly gets involved in disputes between rights holders and alleged infringers. Her approach is to endeavour to achieve a pragmatic settlement, but to fight when the occasion warrants it. This has proved extremely successful over the years. She is praised for her “calm and experienced” approach, offering “logical, effective advice”. This year she has been involved in some contentious matters, including an Intellectual Property Enterprise Court action, resolved in her client’s favour.
Ms Findlay is also the chair of PAMIA Limited, the mutual insurer through which the great majority of British and Irish patent and trademark attorneys obtain their first-level insurance cover. Through her nearly 20 years’ involvement, Ms Findlay has helped build this extremely successful business.
