Dr Isaac Black


Isaac is a trainee in the intellectual property and technology team.

He joined the firm from JAG Shaw Baker when they merged with Withers to create a new legal offering, Withers tech, in 2018.

He is involved in matters across the full range of the group’s practice. He has assisted in several contentious matters including actions for copyright infringement, trade mark oppositions, and telecommunications disputes. On the non-contentious side Isaac has advised on GDPR compliance, been responsible for maintaining clients’ trade mark portfolios, and generally has experience of drafting a variety of commercial agreements and licensing arrangements.

Isaac also has extensive corporate experience from his time as a paralegal at both UK and US firms. He worked on a broad range of both UK and cross-border transactions, including private equity investments, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, and initial public offerings. Isaac’s work has a particular emphasis on technology and life sciences, predominantly with early-stage companies. This stems from his PhD studies, which were conducted in close collaboration with an Oxford biotechnology spin-out company developing novel genetic methods for the control of disease-carrying mosquitoes.
