“IP is centred around innovation and collaboration. It is an exciting and increasingly relevant area of law that is applicable to every industry.”

Bridget is excited about the future of IP and its value and increasing relevance in business strategies. Bridget advises that a key challenge for organisations big and small is to identify their IP assets up front before taking steps to protect and commercialise them.

Bridget specialises in trade marks and brand protection including trade mark prosecution, infringement advice, brand name vetting, domain name disputes, social media takedowns and counterfeiting issues including customs seizures. Bridget also has experience in a range of other intellectual property matters including designs and copyright. 

Bridget represents clients in a range of industries including fashion, cosmetics, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.

In addition to being a qualified lawyer, Bridget is currently studying to be a registered Trade Marks Attorney. Bridget has completed her studies and is due to be registered in December 2020.
