Charlie Winckworth

Cooley (London)

Partner, London

Charlie has developed a wide-ranging and international practice. He provides clear, practical advice, and finds solutions to difficult problems. He works with clients through the entire lifecycle of their brand, from the strategic aspects of obtaining, protecting and commercialising the rights, through to enforcing them, and taking other practical steps to prevent their misuse. Charlie is widely recognised as a leader in the online sphere.

Chambers notes that 'clients appreciate his extensive knowledge of trademark law and the role of IP in an online environment'. WTR1000  states 'with a nuanced grasp of online trademark matters, “he is exceptional in domain name recovery”'. Charlie works with clients across the full range of online matters - from co-leading Amazon's High Court Appeal in their in-site search dispute against Lush, to developing and implementing an anonymous strategy to enable a household name to acquire a strategic domain name for a seven-figure sum.

Advice should never be siloed, and with IP increasingly forming part of the wider commercial matrix, Charlie has significant experience in assisting clients on both disputes and commercial arrangements which extend beyond IP. Recent examples have spanned acting for an automotive manufacturer in a series disputes involving breach of contract and aspects of copyright, database rights and the Euro 5 and 6 legislation, to bringing a $100m claim against a supplier for economic duress, breach of contract, the tort of intimidation, and unlawful means conspiracy.
