Chris Ryan was the instructing solicitor in the case of Shanks v. Unilever before the Supreme Court acting for the former employee in Unilever’s research department who successfully argued that he was entitled to compensation as a result of the invention he had devised while in their employ.

Chris will provide knowledge and experience gained from working on the claimant’s legal team in this interesting and seminal case which resulted in the Supreme Court overturning judgments of all of the earlier courts and tribunals. Chris will also opine on the subsequent legislative changes.  The case received general as well as specialist media attention – even being commented upon in Private Eye and the Victoria Darbyshire Show.
