I have always loved learning how things work – I was the kind of child who took things to pieces! This interest extended to me studying physics at university, and then to my time in research doing my PhD.

I am motivated by finding out new things and understanding the world around me – which has translated perfectly into my role as a European Patent Attorney and Chartered Patent Attorney here at Boult. My cases relate to subject matter spanning many different areas of science and technology, including semiconductor devices, telecommunication systems, scientific instrumentation and software implemented inventions.

My clients range from start-ups and small businesses to large global organisations. I regularly work with inventors directly: those interactions are fascinating and I believe suit my skills in the understanding and explaining of scientific concepts. I enjoy drafting new patent applications to allow me to get to know the technical details of a particular invention, as well as relishing the challenge of devising compelling arguments to take an application through to a granted patent. Although I work with a variety of great clients, I find it especially rewarding to be involved with our academic clients on matters based on new innovations, cooperating with them to support the commercialisation of those new ideas out of the university lab to the “real world”.

Recent experience

Acting for a client in drafting a sequence of patent applications in order to protect the client’s key products in a competitive and fast-moving market, together with advice on filing strategies and commercial issues relating to the best protection of the client’s innovations.

Drafting and prosecuting worldwide a patent application for a university spin-out company, subsequently used as the basis for award of investment in the company.

Acting as a key contact for a multinational company to manage its large portfolio of patent applications, including administrative assistance, as well as drafting, filing and prosecution of new applications.
