5RB welcomes new member

Madeleine Heal joins media set to strengthen IP team

5RB today welcomed its newest member of Chambers, Madeleine Heal. Madeleine joins to strengthen further the intellectual property practice at the media and entertainment law set.

A commercial litigator who specialises in IP, Madeleine practises in all areas of IP including patents, trade marks, copyright, passing off and design right. Legal 500 last year recommended Madeleine as a leading junior in IP saying that she was “very competent and very approachable”.

Madeleine joins 5RB from Stone Chambers and was first called to the Bar in New South Wales in 1990 before being called in England & Wales in 1996. She completed an LLM at the London School of Economics in 1998. 

Joint-head of 5RB, Desmond Browne QC welcomed Madeleine:

“We could not be more delighted that Madeleine has agreed to join us. Her recognised experience as a leading IP specialist makes her an ideal addition to our increasingly busy team in that area and will further strengthen 5RB‘s ability to offer a complete service to our clients across the media and entertainment spectrum.”

Madeleine responded by saying:

5RB is a recognised leader in the field of media and entertainment law. As part of this, it has a strong and growing practice in intellectual property. I am delighted to be joining such a dynamic and well-respected set.”
