I am an IP litigator specialising in patent litigation in the life sciences sector. Having graduated with a science degree, I spent several years working in the pharmaceutical industry, before qualifying as a lawyer. Whilst I have litigated all types of IP, my experience in recent years has been litigating for pharmaceutical companies.
As well as being an experienced litigator in the UK Courts and the European Patent Office, I have experience of litigating in the Court of Justice of the European Union having worked on two seminal cases which were referred to this Court, one concerning SPCs and one concerning counterfeit goods in transit. I frequently advise on multi-jurisdiction patent disputes, co-coordinating litigation in various European and other jurisdictions.
I am an active member of the Bio Industry Association, sitting on the IP committee. I am also an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys. I frequently speak at industry events, particularly on SPCs.
