I advise and litigate for clients in the life sciences, tech & comms, energy & utilities and retail and consumer sectors. I have extensive experience in both European and US litigation, including high-end multi-jurisdictional patent disputes. I have also acted for both opponents and patentees in EPO opposition proceedings. I have also represented clients in contractual disputes, including contractual litigation involving milestone claims in the life sciences sector and in arbitration proceedings regarding IP warranties. I regularly advise clients on IP strategy and on technology-driven M&A deals including in the venture technology field. Before joining Bird & Bird, I was a partner at another global law firm.
