I am a former PhD scientist with over 20 years experience as a solicitor. I specialise in intellectual property and data protection. My expertise includes advising on the protection, exploitation and enforcement of patents and other intellectual property rights. I have particular experience in the chemical, life sciences, retail and creative industries.
I enjoy using my scientific background to understand a client’s technology. Particular highlights are successfully acting in a patent and design right action in the Court of Appeal and negotiating a complex patent licence agreement for a chemical company.
