Profile

Rajvinder advises clients on a range of IP matters, particularly in the electronics, telecommunications and computer software sectors.

Rajvinder is an experienced IP litigator who specialises in advising clients in complex patent disputes, particularly in the electronics, telecommunications, and software sectors. His technical background in computer science and electronics allows him to analyse highly complex patents and provide detailed advice to clients and strategic coordination in cases of multi-jurisdictional litigation.

Notably, Rajvinder was involved in the landmark SEP/FRAND licensing case Unwired Planet v Huawei, giving him particular insight and expertise in disputes involving patent and competition law issues.
