Senior Associate

I provide commercially focused and strategic advice, with my client’s business objectives at the forefront. I am always available to discuss our advice, and tailor it to my client’s changing needs.

I am an intellectual property lawyer and patent & trade marks attorney working in both our brand protection and litigation teams, and have worked in this capacity for over three years. In the brand protection space, I assist clients with trade mark application and prosecution matters, brand disputes, domain name issues and other related intellectual property matters such as consumer law, passing off and copyright advice. I also assist in patent matters, including patent prosecution, opposition and litigation matters.

I have the privilege to work with a diverse range of clients, from local small businesses and start-ups, who need to establish their brands, right through to large multi-national corporations, who require management of their global trade mark portfolios. I also assist clients operating in the pharmaceuticals space on a range of patent matters.

There is an excellent culture of collaboration at Wrays, with a constant exchange of ideas. This free-flow of information allows me to provide well-considered advice to clients, taking into account different approaches and the experiences of other practitioners in addition to my own.
