Qualifications
  • European Patent Attorney
  • Chartered Patent Attorney
  • Certificate in Intellectual Property Law, Queen Mary University of London
  • MRes Molecular and Cellular Biosciences, Imperial College London
  • BSc (Hons) Biochemistry, Imperial College London

Prior to joining Boult, I completed a BSc in Biochemistry and a Master of Research (MRes) in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences at Imperial College London.

My practical experience includes a variety of biochemical, biophysical, molecular and cell biology techniques, with my postgraduate research having investigated the structure and function of protein complexes involved in neurological disorders.

In my current role, I assist with the drafting, filing and prosecution of patent applications in the UK, Europe and worldwide. I have particular experience prosecuting large, multi-country patent families, with a focus on antibodies, small molecule therapeutics and diagnostics. I also enjoy assisting with contentious matters such as opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office.

Recent experience

Assisting with the filing, prosecution and management of a large pharmaceutical patent portfolio in multiple countries.

Assisting with the drafting of a patent application for a client’s new probiotic therapy.

Assisting with preparations for EPO opposition proceedings for a client’s cell-based immunotherapy patent.
