“Intellectual property is at the heart of every digital and tech-focused business. I help clients of all sizes understand how best to leverage value from their IP assets, with a particular focus on technology, patent and software disputes.

In addition to my experience in contentious matters, I have regularly advised on software patentability, technology transactions, brand protection, M&A and structuring issues.

I have a specific interest in emerging technologies, such as quantum computing, blockchain and AI, and I am passionate about how intellectual property can support our clients’ businesses; by protecting their innovations and by having an effective IP strategy.”
