Dominic is Head of European Intellectual Property at US law firm Locke Lord and based in the London office. Both a solicitor and a trademark attorney, he acts for a number of businesses within the drinks sector assisting with the registration and protection of IP, commercial contracts, marketing campaigns and related disputes.
Wine has been a longstanding love and a hobby that got somewhat out of control and ended up on the MW journey. Whilst the numerous legal and commercial challenges mean that wine is an interesting sector to work in, it is his fascination in the world of wine and its tendency to be produced in some of the most beautiful parts of the world by interesting people that is the real attraction.
He lives in South West London, married with two children, and his other interests include music, travelling and mountains.
Current employer: Locke Lord
