Lindsay Gledhill

Head of Intellectual Property

Get in touch

Lindsay Gledhill is Head of Intellectual Property at Harper James. She has specialised in intellectual property exploitation and dispute resolution since 1997. She trained and qualified in Cambridge’s top intellectual property firm during the 'dot com boom', then spent four years at top 50 firm, Walker Morris.

Bringing a unique perspective to trends and developments in IP, Lindsay has fulfilled the role of IP adviser both for technology companies and innovative retail brands. Her previous roles include a number of years at:

  • sensor R&D company Sentec Ltd
  • printed electronics invention house Novalia Ltd
  • Lush Cosmetics
  • ground-breaking travel and internet training company i-to-i

Lindsay is passionate about IP strategy, IP dispute resolution and successful IP exploitation. She also has a wealth of experience both in drafting bespoke agreements of all kinds and resolving potential disputes.

Lindsay is the go-to lawyer for IP-rich firms who wish to protect and exploit their proprietary technology in fast-growing and international markets. Her in-house background and commercial know-how mean she is much in demand and recognised for her intellect and ability to master some of the most complex technology IP briefs. Many of her clients are long-standing and return to her for expert support at key stages in the exploitation of their technology. Her goal to be considered as a trusted commercial adviser and her success in achieving this is evidenced by not only what her clients have to say, but also how she is regarded by highly respected leaders in the field.

Recently Lindsay took part in our Spotlight on a Solicitor series, sharing her journey into law and proudest career moments. Read the interview to hear about her life in law.  


What our clients say

We pride ourselves on delivering an excellent service for clients, but don’t just take our word for it.
Being able to work with a knowledgeable professional like Lindsay, who is also personable and able to explain issues to us in an area far afield of our area of expertise in charitable gifting, has been a real blessing which we greatly appreciate.
Deron Beal Founder and Executive Director, The Freecycle Network
I was searching for affordable legal support, and the subscription service allowed me to access legal support when I didn’t think it would be possible. This way I didn’t have to rely on Google! And it’s really important that businesses get the right advice at the start, so they don’t fall short at a later date
Peter Morris Founder and Director, Lockabox
