About Me

I'm a partner based in London specialising in IP with a particular focus on patents and designs, advising clients on all aspects of patents and design protection and enforcement, from filing to litigation and licensing.

I have been fortunate to work with great clients, big and small, across the world for almost 20 years. I have worked on numerous patent and design cases relating to a wide range of technologies, including medical devices (glucose monitors), gene therapy (RNAi), material science (thermoplastics, LEDs), video coding (H.264, HEVC) and aircraft manufacturing, as well as on 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.
