Jane Mutimear is singled out for her guidance on multi-jurisdictional litigation arising from patent infringement and FRAND disputes.                                                                                           

Jane has been called a leader in her field by Legal 500 and a Who's Who Legal Patent Thought Leader.  She regularly advises clients on cross-border cases, liaising with lawyers in other jurisdictions to plan a litigation or defensive strategy for international clients. She has run many cases through to trial in the High Court and Court of Appeal, has led major IP based arbitrations and has appeared personally on a couple of occasions in the European Court of Justice on behalf of clients. 

She works closely with clients to integrate litigation as part of the wider licensing strategy.
