Blog entries

“The ingenuity of people never ceases to amaze me.  I enjoy learning about my clients’ businesses and helping them to use intellectual property law to protect and exploit their creativity.   

My experience includes litigation in respect of all types of intellectual property rights (patents, confidential information, know how, designs, copyright, trade marks and domain names) as well as drafting R & D agreements, licences and assignments and filing trade marks and designs.  I have acted for clients in tribunals ranging from the UKIPO to the Court of Appeal and in a number of reported patent cases. I advise a broad range of clients including those in the pharmaceutical, biotech, engineering, IT, university and retail sectors and have worked with all sizes of business from small start ups to global pharmaceutical companies. “
