"I thoroughly enjoy being a IP lawyer and the daily challenges that arise. There is no better feeling than successfully advising and helping clients achieve their goals. I take client relationships very seriously and do my utmost to maintain an approachable yet professional relationship with any client that I work with. I have a keen interest in the media, marketing and business generally which I believe allows me to give multi-faceted advice when advising on IP matters. I have a particular interest in copyright, trade marks and media work. Significant work highlights include working for an international dubbing company regarding the worldwide exploitation of intellectual property rights as well as being involved in a patent infringement dispute in the High Court."
