The Kats salute three new Silks

The IPKat is delighted to learn that, of the 104 barristers who have been elevated to the status of Queen's Counsel, three are members of the intellectual property fraternity. They are, in alphabetical order,
* Michael Tappin (8 New Square)
* Justin Turner (3 New Square)
* Mark Vanhegan (11 South Square)
Congratulations are due all round, says the IPKat.  Indeed, agrees Merpel, in this era of recession, depression, economic stagnation and what have you, it's good to know that at least some people can charge a bit more for their services with a clear conscience.

Right: barrister bear can be purchased from the Carbolic Smoke Ball Company. When he takes silk, the price goes up ..

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
