About Me

I am an associate in our London Intellectual Property Group and focus primarily on large-scale telecoms patent litigation.

During my legal career, I have been fortunate enough to work with clients from a variety of sectors, from chemical and mechanical engineering to computing and telecoms, and to gain experience in both contentious and non-contentious IP matters, from patent litigation to IP licensing and research collaboration agreements.

As a chemist by training, I very much enjoy having an innovation-focused practice and getting to learn about new technologies, and the legal issues that relate to them, every day.

Prior to completing my legal education and training, I completed an M.Chem. and PhD in Chemistry at the University of Oxford, and then spent a few years working in technology transfer. I was a Technology Licensing Executive at Imperial Innovations, the (at-the-time) technology transfer team of Imperial College London, where I worked on the commercialisation of the invention & patent portfolios of departments such as the Dyson Robotics Lab. This role exposed me to the commercial side of licensing, which I find particularly useful now when I work on FRAND matters.

At Innovations, I also held positions within the Patent & Licence Management and the Engineering IP teams, thereby gaining well-rounded experience on the development and exploitation of patent portfolios.
