I joined Bird & Bird in 1986 and became a partner ten years later. Today, I work with our Intellectual Property Group in London, where I offer specialist expertise in the management and conduct of UK and cross border patent litigation, particularly in pharma and medical devices.

My practice focuses on patent and trade secret litigation but also encompasses regulatory data exclusivity and supplementary protection certificates.

I am a regular speaker at IP conferences and contribute to the leading IP journals on many aspects of IP law and litigation. In addition, I am the editor of International Intellectual Property Litigation, published by Butterworths.
