Marc graduated with a degree in Biotechnology before going on to study law. Clients and peers describe Marc as “a superb all-round litigator and a master tactician who has a complete understanding of patent litigation” and someone who combines “top-level litigation nous with boundless charm” (Legal 500 2017); "blazing a trail in the life sciences and is a "true leader" in international litigation" (IAM 1000 2017) and a "very tenacious" litigator (Chambers & Partners 2017).
