I graduated from the University of Leeds with a BSc (Hons) in biochemistry and genetics. I joined Forresters in 2001 and specialise in patent prosecution in the UK, Europe and elsewhere. I mainly specialise in the fields of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
I have particular experience of patent prosecution before the European Patent Office, including experience with opposition and appeal procedures; and assisting clients in obtaining Supplementary Protection Certificates throughout Europe. I also provide patent validity, infringement, and freedom-to-operate opinions for clients to facilitate their commercial needs.
Outside of work, I can be found running around after my two young children. When time permits, I enjoy catching up with friends and reading the odd book!
