Trademark and design attorney
I joined NLO Shieldmark as a trademark and design attorney in September 2020. My main focus is helping companies protect their intellectual property rights. As a trademark and design attorney, I make sure my clients can continue to operate their businesses by upholding their intellectual property rights. My responsibilities include protecting the client’s rights, negotiating over possible infringements and advising on the suitability of a new trademark or design.

  • Contracts
  • Trademark law
  • Design law

While studying, I did internships with a number of law firms specialising in intellectual property rights. But it wasn’t until I started with NLO Shieldmark that I knew I wanted to be a trademark and design attorney.

As a trademark attorney, I help develop strong trademarks and designs, both for start-ups and larger, more established companies. Each client has its own products and specific protection requirements. I find it interesting to identify the right type of protection for the client’s needs.

In my free time, I enjoy discovering new cafés and restaurants and I like to cook. I’m also keen on running and playing squash.
