I am a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney, in the IP team at Fieldfisher, with over 20 years' experience working in the field of trade mark and brand protection.
I have particular expertise in formulating worldwide trade mark filing strategies, undertaking clearance searches, trade mark filing and prosecution work before the UK Intellectual Property Office and the European Union Intellectual Property Office and internationally. I deal with contentious matters such as opposition and invalidation actions before the trade mark registries and negotiating settlements in trade mark disputes. I work across all sectors but I have a particular interest in the retail, restaurant and leisure industries.
I am a regular contributor to the firm's 'SnIPpets' intellectual property blog and have written articles in publications such as World Trademark Review.
I enjoy spending my spare time with my young family. I am passionate about music and books and have surprised myself by taking up indoor climbing in my 40s.
