I have broad experience in a variety of contentious and non-contentious work and advise on a range of IP rights including patents, design rights, copyright, trade marks, passing off and domain names.

I have worked for a variety of well-known clients, from pharmaceutical companies and sports clients to tech giants and fashion brands.

My specific experience includes:

  • A US deposition regarding a UK patent infringement dispute against a well-known tech company
  • A legal opinion for a biopharmaceutical company on whether the underlying nucleic acid sequence of its transgene construct infringes two European Patents;
  • Advice for a global pharmaceutical company on patent infringement exemptions in several EU Member States when conducting clinical trials;
  • A trade mark and passing off litigation in the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court against Sky;
  • A strategic due diligence exercise for a worldwide governing body reviewing its licensing and sponsorship agreements;
  • Various trade mark prosecution and enforcement matters for a wide range of clients;

Prior to becoming a lawyer, I completed a degree in Geography from the University of Exeter and worked at Goldman Sachs International.

I also represent clients of the National Deaf Children Society on a pro-bono basis in relation to special educational needs tribunals (most recently advocating at the Royal Courts of Justice) and I'm the founding member of Fieldfisher's Women@Work initiative.
