Hannah Cowley is an intellectual property executive and trainee trade mark attorney at Armstrong Teasdale. She assists with and advises on a number of contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters that range from trade mark applications and oppositions to brand portfolio management, infringement and passing off claims, copyright and design rights.

Hannah has advised a number of clients with regard to the trade mark registration process, including trade mark searches, the drafting of goods and services classes, ensuring distinctiveness of the mark at examination stage and handling opposition proceedings. On a number of occasions, she has also successfully negotiated a settlement between the parties on potential opposition and cancellation proceedings (including by way of co-existence agreements), infringement and passing off claims.

Hannah’s experience includes assisting a world-renowned sporting organisation with trade mark registrations and its anti-infringement program; successfully registering London Marathon’s trade mark in the EU and invalidating confusingly similar EU marks; managing substantive brand portfolios, including those belonging to a number of global sports organisations and a large U.K. wholesales company, and managing and actioning a brand infringement program for a world-renowned tennis club. Hannah also advises on (potential) infringement copyright and design rights.

Hannah is a fully qualified CITMA Paralegal, and is currently training to qualify as a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney.


Hannah joined Armstrong Teasdale in early 2021 when Kerman & Co. in London combined with the firm. Hannah started at Kerman & Co. as a legal secretary, before qualifying as a paralegal and working as an intellectual property executive.
