I am an international intellectual property lawyer working closely with the UK and Singapore teams on APAC and EMEA matters. I typically support clients with IP strategy and enforcement, international legal and policy advice, online marketing, advertising and promotion advice and clearance, data protection advice and online brand and reputation protection.
I have a detailed understanding of copyright and trade mark law, particularly in relation to online exploitation. I have advised some of the world’s leading businesses and most influential individuals on a wide range of issues including site-blocking, cybersquatting (having filed and succeeded in multiple UDRP and URS complaints), social media campaigns, large-scale counterfeiting, 3D printing and impersonation online.
With this experience, I will help you to maximise the value in your rights through efficient management and protection.
Throughout my career, I have focused my practice on IP disputes with a particular specialism in internet-based issues. Prior to joining Taylor Vinters Via in 2019, I have worked for a top-tier global law firm in Hong Kong and London as well as media and technology-focused boutiques in London and Brussels (EU-wide work).
I can advise you on a broad range of topics including:
- copyright, trade mark, passing off and domain name issues;
- matters involving luxury and consumer brands and retail, media, entertainment, sport, the internet and reputation management;
- digital advertising and social media;
- international intellectual property issues and interpretation; and
- legal and policy developments, in particular in relation to digital copyright.
I will provide you with pragmatic, direct advice that helps you make effective commercial decisions. Where there are several options, I will draw from my vast international and cross-industry experience to provide a considered recommendation. I will always make sure I take the time to understand your needs, so that I can provide you with the most relevant advice.
My main passions are the ‘Great Outdoors’ and live music but since the arrival of my twin boys I spend most of my spare time at indoor play centres!
If you would like to discuss how I can help you or your business, please contact me by phone or email and I would be delighted to arrange an initial chat with you.
