I have a background in biology with a specific focus on genetics. I joined D Young & Co in 2000 and I became an associate in 2008.
My practice is hugely varied, and covers a range of biotechnological subject matter, including veterinary medicine, biopharmaceuticals, food technology and biofuels. I act for several direct clients – from high-profile international organisations to start-up companies.
