I am an associate in our Intellectual Property group in Singapore. My areas of practice encompass both non-contentious and contentious IP matters, with a specialist focus on the strategic management of our clients' global trademark and design portfolios.

I work alongside a highly regarded team of intelligent, passionate, and commercially-minded professionals. In assisting local and international clients spanning across various sectors, we work seamlessly with our network of offices and associate firms to deliver quality strategic advice that is effective, comprehensive, and future-proof.

I am responsible for the day-to-day management of clients' global and regional trademark and design portfolios, and am heavily involved in IP audits, clearance searches, and prosecution work. I am also active in contentious trademark matters, having amassed significant experience in handling multi-jurisdictional disputes, including opposition, revocation, and invalidation proceedings.

I regularly assist and advise on commercial matters such as IP assignment and licensing across multiple jurisdictions, franchising, research and project collaboration agreements, distribution agreements, and other commercial contracts and policies.

I enjoy working closely with clients to gain a more intimate understanding of their business and industry, as well as long-term plans. This, together with the volume and complexity of work I have been heavily involved in, leaves me well-placed to offer holistic and cost-effective advice.
