Robert Humphreys

Senior Counsel

Robert serves as Chairman of the Humphreys Law board of directors. As Senior Counsel to Humphreys Law, and as a long standing highly-regarded practitioner in intellectual property, Robert also leads our intellectual property and commercial contract offering.

Legal 500 has commented that Robert provides, “a level of service rarely seen at larger London firms and has over 30 years of experience acting for UK and foreign clients". Legal 500 has consistently listed him over that time as a ‘leading individual’, as has the Chambers Guide.

Robert is admitted as a solicitor to the Law Society of England & Wales as well to the Republic of Ireland Law Society and to the Brussels Bar (French Section). He is also a member of the Ukrainian Bar Association and the International Law Association (ILA).

Outside of work, Robert occupies his time with skiing, cricket, the Pyrenees, family and chickens, bees and fruit-growing.
