I founded SampsonLegal to offer clients clear, commercial, practical and expert advice and solutions at an affordable cost – often for an agreed fee.

I undertake a wide range of commercial work, and my specialisms include IP (protection, exploitation and infringement), IT and data protection.

I have 30 years’ experience, including 15 as a partner at two leading law firms, an engineering degree, and an intellectual property qualification from the University of Bristol. Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners ranked me as a “leading individual” and a “notable practitioner”.
