Trade Mark Assistant London
Profile of Sophie Rann

I joined the trade mark team at D Young & Co in January 2022 having completed a law degree at the University of Nottingham. I find it very rewarding to see our clients' trade marks in use, whether that be for their products or brands in supermarkets or on TV.

In the trade mark team, I support partners and attorneys with all stages of contentious and non-contentious IP matters in the UK, EU and internationally. My role involves clearance searches, preparing witness statements and submissions, legal research, use investigations, registry proceedings, watch notice analysis, and large-scale evidence exercises. I particularly enjoy the variety of tasks; no day is ever the same.

I assist with a diverse range of clients across sectors including pharmaceuticals, technology, fashion and retail, energy, food and beverages, hospitality, media, and entertainment.
