I advise domestic and international clients on a wide range of intellectual property disputes, including copyright and database rights; trade mark infringement; passing off; designs rights; breach of confidence; and technology disputes.
I also advise clients in relation to various aspects of brand protection, including trade mark portfolio management; clearance searches; and contentious proceedings such as opposition, revocation and invalidity actions.
I act for clients across a broad spectrum of industries, including media organisations and technology firms. I have a particular interest in the intersection of IP with data protection and competition law, and I have assisted with several matters in this area, including two high-profile cases in the High Court.
Prior to joining Fieldfisher, I worked for more than a decade in the news, media and entertainment sector (including as a producer for major international broadcasters) where I gained significant experience in content creation, television production, international IP licensing, and fair dealing. I also hold a Master of Science in Journalism from Columbia University in New York.
I can advise clients in English and Italian, and I also speak French.

I am a member of IPSoc (the society for junior IP practitioners) and a steering committee member of The Pride Network at Fieldfisher, promoting an inclusive and supportive environment for the LGBTQ+ community.
