Steve Kuncewicz, one of the North’s best-known intellectual property, media and social media lawyers, has taken up a new role with Bermans. He stepped down from his previous role as Boohoo.com’s in-house lawyer earlier this year.
Kuncewicz was one of the first lawyers in Manchester to not only specialise in the creative and media sectors, but also to actively get involved as a familiar face, keen to engage with the community.
As current evidence of this, he is co-incidentally a judge at the Prolific North Awards.
His area of expertise spans music to broadcasting copyright and trade marks, through to domain names, moral rights, advertising and marketing and across to passing off, libel, slander, malicious falsehood and breach of data protection….
He is believed to be Manchester’s ‘most followed lawyer’ on Twitter and can also be heard increasingly these days as a media pundit on Radio 5 live.
Prior to joining Boohoo.com in 2012, he worked at several regional law firms including Halliwells, Gateley and Ralli.
