Susi is a Chartered Patent Attorney and European Patent Attorney in the High Tech and Electrical Group.

Susi works across a range of technologies; mainly focused on biomedical engineering, medical physics and aerospace related matters. However, Susi has additional experience working in the fields of design, manufacture and testing of mechanical systems. She also involves colleagues with expertise in other specialities where more appropriate for particular matters. As well as prosecuting patent applications before the UKIPO and EPO, Susi has also had significant successes in opposition and appeal work before the EPO.

Susi enjoys working with a range of clients, from large corporations through to smaller entities. She always endeavours to tailor her advice and practice to suit the client.

In addition to her patent practice, Susi is involved in overseeing the firm’s European Patent Validations Group, which handles the grant stage of European Patent applications before the EPO and the subsequent patent validation procedure before national Patent Offices throughout Europe. As part of this role she is active in the firm’s committee relating to the upcoming Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent. She recently authored an article on the subject (entitled “What you need to know about the UP and UPC“) that was published in The Patent Lawyer.

Susi is an active supporter of IP Inclusive, and serves as co-chair for the Women in IP group. She also sits on the Diversity and Inclusion and Women in IP committees of the Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO). Susi is a member of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) and sits on their Women in IP and IP Practice in Europe committee. She spoke on diversity and inclusion matters at the IQPC Global IP Exchange. She is a co-author on a couple of whitepapers issued by the IPO; one entitled “Diversity in the European Innovation Industry and IP profession” and the other entitled “The myth of the meritocracy in law firms and corporate legal departments“.

Susi has a MEng Mechanical and a PhD Mechanical Engineering, both from the University of Leeds. Susi’s PhD focused on the investigation of the role of blood flow in the clotting of blood, using a combination of computational fluid dynamics software and experimental techniques.
