I am an Associate in the Intellectual Property Department, based in our London office.
I am an experienced Trade Mark Attorney with over eight years' experience in IP and brand protection. I joined the team in 2019, having worked previously at a combination of law firms and patent attorneys.
In terms of my day-to-day work, I advise clients on all aspects of trade marks and designs. This includes the adoption of new trade marks and designs, clearing them for use in the marketplace, selecting the most suitable registration systems and handling any disputes that may occur. It also covers enforcement of IP rights in the UK, Europe and in most other territories globally, particularly the US, Canada, Middle East and Asia. I have advised high-profile clients in a range of sectors including food and beverages, retail, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, fashion, financial services and media.
I am passionate about trade marks, designs and all aspects of branding. Assisting with brand creation and development is also of particular interest, as is global trade mark portfolio management and the overlap between non-traditional trade marks, designs, copyright and other areas of law.
In my spare time I can be found playing football or any other sport (when not injured).
