Biography

Sally has a wealth of experience working with businesses at the cutting edge of research and technology, and whose intellectual property is of prime importance.

Sally is one of Bird & Bird’s leading intellectual property (IP) partners. She provides a full range of intellectual property commercial advice and support to her clients, including licensing, partnering and exploitation  agreements,  research,  development  and marketing collaborations. She also frequently advises clients on regulatory and “freedom to operate” matters, and manages significant due diligence matters. As a transactional intellectual property lawyer, she provides advice in relation to the protection and exploitation of a full range of IP rights, both in stand-alone transactions and as part of an acquisition, divestment or investment activity.
