In Liverpool at least they can deliver on those expectations because Quality Solicitors Jackson have just taken on my old friend, Michael Sandys, as head of commercial law. I have known Michael ever since he was at Cobbetts and he has instructed me in some of my biggest cases including Excavating & Contracting v Windmill Construction where Roger Wyand QC and I had an excellent win in before Judge Maddocks QC in a difficult passing off case against Leo Price QC and Adrian Speck as well as Microsoft Corp. v Ling and Others  EWHC 1610 and Twentieth Century Fox Ltd and Others v Newzbin Ltd.  EWHC 608 where we ended up on the losing case despite giving the case our all.
Michael is not just a good litigator, he also knows his onions in licensing, agency, defamation and other commercial stuff. He supported the Liverpool Inventors Club from its start and I have just got an email from him about Liverpool Design week which suggests that he has something to do with that too.
