I am a partner in our Intellectual Property group in Singapore where my commercial insights into our clients' needs enable me to design and implement global patent monetisation strategies.
With extensive experience in patent litigation, patent management and monetisation, trademark litigation and other high value IP dispute resolution matters, I am also experienced in managing anti-counterfeiting issues. Over the years, I have handled major patent lawsuits in Singapore and internationally across various sectors, specifically Technology and Life Sciences & Healthcare.
I have also managed many trademark disputes in Singapore and internationally, including trademark lawsuits, oppositions/cancellations and anti-counterfeiting cases. Those matters span many sectors, including Technology, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Retail & Consumer, Hospitality and Entertainment.
More recently, I have handled disputes in Singapore concerning geographical indications. I also manage design and copyright disputes, and manage IP commercialisation projects for clients (from due diligence to filing to exploitation).
Before joining our firm in 2017, I was associate vice president at a large technology company, where I oversaw the company's legal matters on a global basis, with a focus on worldwide IP registration, litigation and enforcement, as well as all other contentious matters. I handled a number of patent lawsuits in the US (at the US International Trade Commission and in various District Courts), and in Europe. I also managed trademark disputes across the globe, including trademark lawsuits and oppositions/ cancellations in the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Turkey, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia. I also acted as an adviser to senior management on key legal moves and decisions, including the monetisation of the company's patent portfolio.
I am also a regular public speaker and panelist on IP issues including patent and trade mark litigation, brand management, counterfeiting, and the commercialisation of intellectual property.
