Trade Mark Assistant Southampton
Profile of Bonnie Brooks

I joined D Young & Co in 2021 after completing an LLB degree in Law with Psychology and working in the financial sector. I have a diverse background in conducting legal and non-legal research for non-profit organisations, UK start-ups and transnational corporations, and my background in psychology offers a unique viewpoint on brand protection.

In the trade mark team, I provide technical support to partners and qualified attorneys in all stages of contentious and non-contentious trade marks matters within the UK, EU and/or internationally. My duties include drafting specifications, conducting clearance searches, assisting in the handling of contentious proceedings before the UK and EUTM registries (including the preparation of submissions and evidence).

I assist with a diverse range of clients operating in the following sectors: pharmaceuticals, technology, fashion and retail, cosmetics, energy, food and beverages, hospitality, media, and entertainment.
