  David Stone

Partner, Global Head of Intellectual Property

London

David works with the world’s leading businesses to protect their most valuable asset: their brands. Leading the A&O global IP practice, he is a distinguished IP litigator specialising in trademarks and registered and unregistered designs.

A solicitor advocate, David also has the benefit of in-house experience having worked in-house with Coca-Cola for a number of years. In 2017, David was authorised to sit part time as a Deputy High Court Judge.

He is regularly sought after to speak, providing unparalleled narrative and advice around the most crucial IP issues. David is a Research Fellow of the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre, and teaches IP, including at the Universities of Oxford, Queen Mary and Alicante.

The second edition of David's book, European Union Design Law: A Practitioners' Guide, was published by Oxford University Press in January 2016.
