The Leeds office of Gateley Legal has announced the appointment of a new IP partner to its Commerce, Technology and Media (CTM) team.

Ed Meikle has over 20 years’ experience advising clients on the development, commercialisation and protection of brands and technology. He acts for national and multinational businesses, as well as fast growth SMEs, and is particularly well-known for his sector expertise in retail, sport, food and consumer products, providing strategic advice to many household names.

Ed joins Gateley Legal from DWF where he spent nine years as an Intellectual Property partner. He has also headed up national IP Litigation and Retail as part of his role.

Ed commented: “I was attracted to the role at Gateley Legal, largely because they are such a highly-regarded national practice. The business has undergone exponential growth over the past five years, and it’s because of their forward-thinking mentality and complete focus on adding value for their clients.

“They also have real expertise in the areas of retail, consumer products and sport. I’m looking forward to further enhancing and growing this area of the business in Yorkshire and the North East, where I will split my time.”

Andrew Johnson, CTM partner and head of Gateley Legal’s Leeds office, said: “Ed is a great addition to our team and brings a wealth of experience with him. Gateley Legal already have real strength in the areas of retail, consumer products and sport, but we know that we can enhance these further and I look forward to working with Ed to create even more opportunities for the business.”

The appointment of Ed follows the news that specialist property consultants, Gateley Hamer, has recently expanded its property offering into Leeds, with the appointment of senior associate, David Strafford and associate, James Staniford.

Andrew continued: “I’m pleased to welcome David and James to the Leeds team. Their extensive experience will greatly benefit us as we grow our Leeds offering and continue to help our clients maximise the potential of upcoming property developments and projects.”
