Hannah Schofield's practice is predominantly concerned with multi-jurisdictional patent litigation across the technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences sectors. Her main focus is advising clients on both assertion of patents and defence against infringement claims. She has also been involved with various non-litigious matters, including advising on patent assignments and assisting with IP-related due-diligence.

Hannah has also been involved in pro bono work. She successfully represented a client in a compensation claim for Personal Independence Payment.

Hannah trained at Hogan Lovells, undertaking seats in Real Estate, Intellectual Property, Banking (during a six-month secondment to the Hong Kong office) and the Tech Hub. Her work in the Tech Hub involved advising on emerging laws around disruptive technologies, regulation of cryptocurrency and SaaS agreements.

Hannah graduated from the University of Warwick with a First Class Honours degree in Management. After qualifying as a lawyer, Hannah completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice at the University of Oxford, achieving a Distinction.
