After spending nearly a decade at the university and a brief stint in a start-up, I decided to move into the field of intellectual property rights. A few years into this profession, I am convinced that this was the right decision for me.

I am a friendly person who really enjoys working with people. Being a patent attorney not only allows me to do this but also to stay on top of the cutting-edge developments in the industry.

My technical background and patent experience give me an edge when handling patent prosecution matters. My legal experience focuses on advancing my clients' inventions from a written draft to a granted patent. I also provide insight via infringement analyses, novelty searches, freedom-to-operate evaluations, and strategic patent advice. My goal is to deliver practical, client-centred solutions in line with my belief that understanding technology and the market is pivotal. I aim to provide transparent and effective counsel to clients seeking patent solutions.
