Gurminder has more than 15 years’ of experience of advising creative businesses on how to protect their IP and grow. He was instrumental in launching Wiggin’s TM filing practice in 2011, and has helped a number of established brands to better understand their IP portfolios and exploit them to their full potential. 

“I specialise in IP and brand management, and oversee global trade mark portfolios. I use my sector knowledge to help brands to develop commercially-focussed and data-driven strategies for portfolio management. I have significant experience of Registry matters in the UK, EU and beyond, and advise on matters ranging from brand extension to co-existence in an international context. I also handle a range of contractual matters in the fields of brand licensing and merchandising.

Having spent 9 months in-house with BT Vision ahead of the platform’s launch in 2007, I have direct experience of what it takes to get a significant brand off the ground. This, coupled with my experience of working with a number of successful high-growth companies through UK/European accelerators (such as Microsoft Accelerator, Wayra and BBC Worldwide Labs), has given me a clear understanding of the sorts of challenges and opportunities that face businesses looking to scale-up in a digital age.”
