Case Study

Helping Barclays with IP expertise



Barclays needed an Intellectual Property lawyer to cover additional workload coming into the legal team. The role required an experienced lawyer who could manage the extensive width and breadth of Barclays’ IP.


Drawing on its deep bench of talent, LOD recommended a full-time IP specialist, LOD Lawyer Neil, who was a senior IP lawyer with extensive in-house experience.


Our lawyer was able to get up to speed, earn trust, understand the business needs and the ways of working in record time. During his assignment, Neil also supported the Head of Global IP with the reorganisation and centralisation of Barclays’ IP function. But don’t just take our word for it…

“We were very impressed that LOD supplied such a high-quality lawyer in Neil. The depth of his in-house experience and the high quality of his work made him the perfect fit for us, and he was able to take on important and complex work immediately. Neil became an essential member of our team, as evidenced by the length of time that we worked with him. His ability to build relationships with key business units and stakeholders has been a particular asset to us. We would definitely continue to use LOD for alternative resourcing requirements.”
