Trade Mark Assistant Southampton
Profile of Tanja Hofer
I joined D Young & Co in 2017 after completing my Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at De Montfort University. I particularly enjoy working in an international spectrum on contentious and non contentious IP matters for a wide range of clients including UK companies, start-ups to multi-national corporations. Being able to use my international background for varied businesses in complex IP matters is very motivating.

I work in the trade mark department supporting the partners and attorneys in a range of intellectual property matters on a UK, EU and international scale including clearance exercises, filings, legal research, use investigations, registry proceedings and assisting in large-scale evidence exercises. The sectors I am involved in are diverse and mainly focus on pharmaceutical and medical devices, technology, energy, fashion and retail, food and beverages, hotel, media and entertainment.
