I am a senior associate in our Intellectual Property practice in London, where I specialise in resolving intellectual property disputes.

I practice in all areas of intellectual property law. As a solicitor advocate, my particular focus is on bringing and defending cases in the High Court and specialist tribunals, both during litigation and in the preparatory stages. Recent High Court cases have included acting for Allergan Pharmaceuticals in respect of patents for ophthalmic treatments; defending and resolving a highly complex trade secrets claim against a major UK e-liquid brand; and acting on behalf of a global media company to secure an emergency injunction in respect of a breach of confidence.

In the field of patents, I have considerable experience of telecoms and electronics disputes, having acted for and advised several major patent holders, implementers, and patent pools in respect of technical and FRAND licensing issues. Notable past cases in the UK cases between Unwired Planet v Huawei; Apple v Qualcomm, and Good Technology v Mobile Iron; as well as confidential arbitrations.

My background before law is in biomedical engineering, combining more traditional engineering disciplines (such as electronics, mechanics, materials science and computing) with medical concepts (including anatomy, drug delivery and biochemistry).

I also contribute frequently to specialist legal journals including the European Intellectual Property Review and Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice, and publications including the Institution of Engineering & Technology's E&T Magazine, writing about cutting-edge legal issues and developments.
