I am a Legal Director in the firm’s Intellectual Property team.

I am an experienced intellectual property litigator and also maintain a practice in contentious data protection. Although my practice has involved advising IP and data-rich clients across a range of sectors, I have a particular interest in issues affecting software, video games and technology businesses. I regularly advise clients on matters such as development, ownership and licensing of software and technology, disputes about rights ownership and software defects. In addition to the private sector, I have advised a number of public sector bodies on these issues, including matters where IP, data and technology intersect.

My intellectual property experience encompasses a wide range of contentious and non-contentious advice including trade mark prosecution, brand protection, patent, trade mark, copyright and design infringement, counterfeit and imitation products, passing off, domain name and company name disputes as well as transactional corporate and commercial matters.

This includes a busy practice enforcing and defending IP-related claims in and out of the courtroom. My advisory work has involved creating strategy documents to help businesses identify and protect IP and navigate risks, including techniques to manage the risk of infringement at the content creation stage. I have also supported a number of innovative businesses through significant R&D projects.

My contentious data protection work covers disputes relating to issues such as subject access and other DPA requests, and defending compensation claims for distress or other damage. I also provide tactical advice to assist in resolving small individual claims as well as complex matters involving multiple claimants.

I am experienced in High Court and County Court proceedings, including taking matters to final contested hearings and trial. When urgent assistance is needed, I have extensive experience of applying for and defending applications for injunctions and other interim relief. I also have practical experience of obtaining and executing search orders and freezing injunctions in an anti-counterfeiting context.
