I am a trainee associate based in the UAE offices. I am currently studying the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Law in London, in order to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales.

I work with the Intellectual Property team and have extensive experience in all aspects of brand protection and portfolio management in the UAE, MENA region and internationally. I am developing my expertise in the field of design, patent and copyright protection.

I have nearly 11 years' experience. My experience covers trade mark prosecution, including portfolio management, mini IP audits and gap analysis, assisting brand owners to implement global brand clearance and filing strategies, in addition to handling oppositions and appeals.

I also advise clients on the protection and enforcement of their trade mark rights including preparing cease & desist letters, filing complaints, coordinating investigations, coordinating and attending raids with the administrative authorities against infringers, conducting trainings to officials on behalf of brand owners and processing of all associated legal documentation.

I have advised and assisted numerous clients across a range of industries including aviation, fashion, retail, entertainment, restaurants, cosmetics, real estate, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications in their worldwide filing programmes.

I am fluent in English and Arabic.
