About Me

I'm a partner specialising in patents and designs in our IP Group in London.

As a dually qualified solicitor and patent attorney, I advise clients on all aspects of patents and designs, from 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 managed a variety of UK 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 manufacture. I have also worked on a number of arbitration cases relating to 3G/4G SEP portfolio valuation and FRAND royalty rate determination.
In 2020 and 2021, I was recognised as a Rising Star by Managing IP.
Prior to embarking on a career in law, I read Engineering at Cambridge University.
