I am a solicitor in the commercial team after joining Bates Wells in February 2023 from New Zealand.

We work with a wide range of clients (including B Corps and purpose driven businesses) and charities on commercial contracts as well as advising clients on technology and intellectual property related matters. I enjoy equipping organisations with terms tailored to their specific requirements.

Our team have particular expertise in advising on EdTech and MedTech, and on contracting for sustainable supply chains.

  • Advised a number of charities and businesses on licensing arrangements to support the commercialisation of their intellectual property.
  • Advised a developer and supplier of generic and customised drug delivery and medical device platforms on licensing arrangements.
  • Assisted a UK based medical research charity with various contracts within their supply chain with a particular focus on technology procurement.
  • In my previous role in New Zealand, I supported the development of ‘Climate clauses for Aotearoa New Zealand’, climate reporting standards applicable across multiple sectors and practices.
