About Me

As a partner specialising in patents and designs in our IP Group in London, I advise clients on all aspects of patents and designs, from their creation to litigation and licensing.

In the course of over 15 years of experience as a solicitor and a patent attorney, I have been fortunate to work with great clients, big and small, across the world and in various sectors, particularly in the telecoms, life sciences, engineering and retail sectors.

I have worked on a variety of UK Court of Appeal, High Court and IPEC patent cases relating to a wide range of technologies, including medical devices (glucose monitoring), gene therapy (RNAi), material science (thermoplastics, LEDs), video coding (H.264, HEVC) and aircraft manufacturing. I have been involved in a number of telecoms cases relating to 3G/4G SEP portfolio valuation and FRAND royalty rate determination.

Prior to embarking on a career in law, I studied Engineering at Cambridge University.
In 2020 and 2021, I was recognised as a Rising Star by Managing IP.
