Faizul Azman accepts instructions on a broad range of Intellectual Property matters. He provides advice, drafts pleadings, and represents clients in litigation at both interlocutory and final hearings.
Faizul’s Intellectual Property practice focuses on the following areas:
- Trade Marks
- Passing Off
Prior to joining Chambers, Faizul was a Senior Policy Advisor in the Copyright and Enforcement Directorate at the UK Intellectual Property Office. He managed and developed the UK’s copyright exceptions policy, responded to copyright enquiries, met stakeholders and drafted briefs to senior government ministers and officials.
Faizul also represented the UK at the Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights at the World Intellectual Property Organisation in Geneva, and at the EU working groups in Brussels to negotiate the legal text of a Directive and Regulation to implement the Marrakesh Treaty into EU and UK Law.
Faizul’s overlapping practice in Commercial Law and former practice in Employment Law matters complements his Intellectual Property practice.
