Ben Allgrove is a much sought-after copyright, privacy, AI and wider technology expert with an emphasis on digital media and intermediary platforms. A client says, "Ben is exceptional in terms of responsiveness and his commercial sense. He's an amazing lawyer with an outstanding practice. He is analytical, thorough and diligent. He has sound judgement and gives pragmatic advice with creative problem-solving" (Chambers UK, Media & Entertainment, 2020, Band 2; Legal 500, Leading Individual in TMT, 2020). A Rhodes Scholar, he has twice been named in The Lawyer's "Hot 100" lawyers (in 2019 and 2012), along with being named E-Commerce Lawyer of the Year (UK) in the ILO Client Choice Awards 2011 and Assistant Solicitor of the Year in the British Legal Awards in 2009.
Ben advises market-leading and independent digital media and technology companies on content licensing, production, regulation, privacy and copyright litigation. A client says, "He has a very strong understanding of how to achieve a bespoke agreement whereas most media lawyers I've dealt with use templates of one kind or another" (Chambers UK, Media & Entertainment, 2019, Band 2). Another client says, "He specializes in contentious and consumer regulatory, IP and privacy matters and "is sharp and knows how to outwit the other side in a negotiation" (Legal 500 UK, IP, 2019).
Ben is also the partner in charge of Baker McKenzie's Reinvent innovation arm.
