Intellectual Property

Emily is part of our London Brands team within the firm's Intellectual Property Media and Technology practice, which Chambers describes as "a fantastic team – very organised and they have excellent technical understanding" and "one of the best all-round IP groups in London" with "very able and hard-working associates". Emily advises clients across a range of business sectors with all aspects of brand strategy, including the protection, exploitation and enforcement of their intellectual property rights. Emily enjoys getting to grips with challenging legal issues, and prides herself on delivering commercial, solutions-driven advice. 

Emily's key areas of focus are trade marks, domain names and designs. She has recently acted for one of the world's leading automotive manufacturers in a trade mark dispute in the High Court, and for a cult beauty brand in a High Court action concerning the infringement of its registered Community designs. She regularly acts for clients in trade mark proceedings before the UK IPO, and in domain name disputes before Nominet. Emily has also completed two client secondments, one to the litigation team of a leading tobacco company and the other to the intellectual property team of a large investment bank, both of which have provided her with invaluable commercial experience.
