I am a Senior Associate in the Intellectual Property Group based in Dubai, specialising in all aspects of brand protection.

I first qualified as a New York State Attorney-at-Law and on return to Europe, qualified as both an Irish and UK Trade Mark Attorney. I have been in the Middle East since 2015, advising clients on brand protection issues across the MENA region and internationally. I particularly specialise in the protection and enforcement of trade marks, which includes clearance searches, international branding strategies, infringement actions, anti-counterfeiting measures and domain name disputes.

I represent clients across a wide variety of sectors including F&B, hospitality, fashion, cosmetics, electronics, FMCG, and pharmaceuticals. Having practised in multiple continents, my international experience allows me to bring a global and holistic approach to our clients' brand protection concerns.
