I am a specialist lawyer in the life sciences sector, with a degree in biological sciences. I help medical device, pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients navigate the laws, regulations and codes that govern the life sciences industry to achieve their commercial objectives.

I draft commercial agreements incorporating appropriate commercial and regulatory solutions. My work has included: licensing and collaboration agreements, agency and distribution agreements, consultancy agreements, contracts for goods and services, customer order terms and conditions and clinical trial agreements.

I advise on intellectual property (IP) issues including brand protection, IP ownership and internet activities.

I provide guidance on the promotion of pharmaceutical products and medical devices, including the use of social media and apps. I also advise on interacting with healthcare professionals, institutions and patients, on anti-bribery issues, and on transparency and reporting requirements. My work has included advising on the laws controlling use of human tissue and patient personal data.  

My expertise includes acting on corporate M&A and venture capital transactions in the life science sector, as well as other technology and IP rich business sectors. I have assisted with due diligence, contract disclosure and IP matters.

In my spare time I enjoy running and swimming.
