I am a Partner in Marriott Harrison’s Commercial Department, with over 20 years’ experience specialising in commercial contracts and intellectual property law. I work with a range of companies from large national and multi-national companies to SMEs and start-ups across a wide range of industries. I have worked extensively with companies in the technology, e-commerce, leisure, and retail sectors.
My focus is on providing strategic solutions to businesses looking to protect and exploit their intellectual property. I assist in creating and implementing IP and brand protection strategies, filing and prosecuting UK and international trade marks, and enforcing IP rights.
I also draft and negotiate complex IP and IT-related commercial agreements, including patent and know-how licenses, master service agreements, software licenses, and software development agreements.
I enjoy working closely with clients, getting to know their business and understanding their short-term needs and future plans, with the aim of providing pragmatic and effective advice and achieving positive outcomes.
