I advise clients in a variety of industries, including gaming, film and entertainment, publishing, fashion, food and beverage, home furnishings, healthcare, education and sport.
Some of the clients that I represent include Forbes LLC, publishers of Forbes magazine, Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., makers of the hugely successful computer games Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, and Randox Laboratories Ltd.
I have over 9 years' domestic and international experience advising clients in relation to their intellectual property and commercial requirements. This includes worldwide trade mark clearance, filing and prosecution. I regularly represent clients in contentious registry proceedings including bringing and defending trade mark opposition, invalidity and revocation actions throughout the world. I advise on trade mark licensing, exploitation and commercialisation, settlement, co-existence agreements and dispute resolution.
I have strong commercial acumen which enables me to get to the heart of clients' business objectives quickly and translate this into a tailored legal service.
I have good interpersonal skills and enjoy developing a strong relationship with my clients.
I have good attention to detail, which is key in ensuring that a brand is adequately protected.
I am skilled at digesting complex legal advice delivered by foreign associates and translating it into bite sized and easily digestible advice to the client.
I am a good negotiator who is able to think outside the box and work on a solution that meets or exceeds the client's requirements.
I write for Fieldfisher's online blog, SnIPpets and have spoken at The Great Escape Festival and Branchage Film Festival. Between 2010 and 2013 I ran and hosted the Acumedia debating and networking event in Brighton. I was also once the warm up act for Frank Skinner.
I enjoy donating my spare time and money to Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club.
