Verity Ellis, Associate, Intellectual Property
I am an intellectual property solicitor and work as an associate in Fieldfisher's IP and Technology, Protection and Enforcement group. I joined Fieldfisher in 2017, having trained and worked at a leading international firm followed by a boutique IP practice in London.
I advise clients across a wide range of contentious intellectual property matters, providing commercial advice to new and established brands in pre and post litigation scenarios. With a focus on brand protection strategy and enforcement, I specialise in trade mark, design and patent disputes. I have also worked on technology disputes, particularly in relation to outsourcing agreements. I have experience of litigation in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court, High Court (both Chancery and Queen's Bench divisions) and Court of Appeal, together with registry actions.
I represent a variety of UK and international clients including those in the entertainment, technology, FMCG and luxury goods industries.
I enjoy writing articles for external publications and contributing to the firm's 'SnIPpets' intellectual property blog. One of the most exciting things about my role is having the opportunity to speak at external events and talk to clients about their businesses.
Outside of work I try to be outdoors as much as possible, be it on a bike or a pair of skis.
