H&L advises Glasswall Solutions in High Court patent victory

10 October 2018

We are delighted to have acted for our client Glasswall Solutions, a global cyber security company, in the successful defence of the validity of one of its patents in the High Court.

The challenge, which was based on alleged invalidity over two pieces of prior art and was brought by one of Glasswall’s competitors, was dismissed by the High Court.

The Court awarded Glasswall nearly all of its costs, and rejected the claimant’s application for permission to appeal.

Our team was led by partner Andy Millmore and senior associate Kostyantyn Lobov.

Greg Sim, CEO of Glasswall Solutions, said: “We’re really pleased with the end result and the expertise from the legal team at Harbottle & Lewis, as well as their deep sector knowledge, was of a high standard. The collaboration between our team and the Harbottle team was seamless and we valued their professional advice throughout the process.”

Andy Millmore said: “This is great news for our client and we’re pleased our advice and expertise helped secure the outcome we were all working towards.”
