I specialise in multi-jurisdictional contentious patent matters, with a particular focus on Life Sciences & Healthcare and the Tech & Comms sector.
When I joined Bird & Bird in 2005, I was involved in a broad range of intellectual property tasks, including patents, trademarks, designs, domain names and unfair competition, both in contentious and non-contentious matters, for clients active in different sectors.
I then specialised in patent litigation in the life sciences sector. In particular, on a daily basis, I am involved in pan-European litigation related to pharmaceutical and biotechnological patents and supplementary protection certificates and patents on medical devices.
I am also experienced in patent litigation in the telecommunications sector. In particular, I have been involved in various litigations concerning standard essential patents but also in defining the strategy of protection and enforcement of these patents and in managing the related competition issues.
I have contributed to various legal publications and articles on intellectual property law (including Managing Intellectual Property Magazine, The Life Sciences Law Review, Life Sciences Legal Practice Guide, Studi in memoria di Paola A .E. Frassi, Kluwer Trademark Litigation Smart Charts), and I'm a member of the Editorial Board of EPLAW Patent Blog and of the European Copyright and Design Reports (Sweet & Maxwell).
