I am a partner in our Intellectual Property Group in Singapore, where my commercial insight into our clients' needs enables me to design and implement global patent monetisation strategies.
With extensive experience in patent litigation, patent management and monetisation, trademark litigation and other high value IP dispute resolution matters, I am also experienced in managing anti-counterfeiting issues. Over the years, I have handled major patent lawsuits in Singapore and internationally, including a number in the US (at the US International Trade Commission and in various District Courts), and in Europe.
I have also managed trademark disputes across the globe, including trademark lawsuits and oppositions/cancellations in the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Turkey, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia.
Before joining Bird & Bird in 2017, I was associate vice president at Creative Technology Ltd where I oversaw the company's legal matters on a global basis, with a focus on worldwide IP registration, litigation and enforcement, as well as all other contentious matters. I also acted as an adviser to senior management on key legal moves and decisions, including the monetisation of the company's patent portfolio.
I am a regular public speaker and panellist on IP issues including patent and trade mark litigation, brand management, counterfeiting, and the commercialisation of intellectual property.
