I have gained experience in a broad range of contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters covering a number of sectors. I have been involved in a range of IP licensing and transactional matters. As well as providing regulatory advice I have also co-ordinated the provision of multi-jurisdictional regulatory advice to clients in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector. My litigation experience has primarily focused on patent disputes, particularly in the life sciences sector. As a scientist I like finding solutions to problems; I apply this same approach to my work and do not just provide answers to questions but also solutions. Having worked in a research group I find that I work well in teams but also independently, this flexibility means I have the focus to get on with my own tasks, but that I also enjoy collaborating with my colleagues and talking a problem through to find a solution.Having friends and family involved in the start-up scene means that I know what it takes and what it means to run your own business and the issues concerned. This combined with my experience of working with both smaller and larger companies has given me the ability to tailor my work appropriately.I have contributed to a number of legal publications for our media-focused news hub MediaWrites and I am part of the editorial team.
