My background as an engineer enables me to analyse complex problems and deliver tailored, practical advice.In recent years I have been involved in a range of contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters. With my background in computing, I am often involved in disputes involving complex technologies. My recent experience includes matters involving reservoir flow measurement techniques, cellular standards, power electronics and blockchain-based asset management technologies. I've also worked on brand management and protection, including advising an international media organisation on its global trade mark portfolio and litigating a trade mark claim before the High Court and Court of Appeal. I have advised on copyright in computer software and breach of confidence – working closely with our client to develop robust and defensible processes for designing and implementing technology via a clean room process. I am a keen proponent of legal innovations. I am a member of the core team behind our market-leading patent analytics offering 'Pattern' and I'm presently involved in a cutting-edge AI and natural language processing project.I am a member of the IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology) and SCL (Society for Computers and Law).
