Helen graduated with a degree in human genetics from the University of Nottingham before completing a masters degree in computer science at the University of Wales.  Her enjoyment in learning about new and diverse technologies and her determination to use her diverse scientific qualifications drove her to pursue a career as a patent attorney.  In 2003 she completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Intellectual Property Law at The University of Manchester and began her career in private practice as a trainee patent attorney in 2004.

Helen qualified as a Chartered and European Patent Attorney and a European Design Attorney in 2008 and then went on to obtain her qualifications as a Registered and European Trade Mark Attorney.

In addition to genetics and computer-related inventions, Helen’s particular technical expertise is broad due to her enthusiasm to take on a range of technologies and her ability to understand them.  Her technical experience also covers biotechnology, healthcare, mechanical inventions, medical and dental devices including implants, food technology, textiles and filtration.   She has extensive knowledge in patent prosecution in the UK and Europe and in providing infringement and invalidity opinions based on UK law. 

During her career she has acquired vast experience in working with a range of clients including individuals, SMEs, large companies and Universities and their spin-outs in both patent and trade mark matters. 

Over the last 15 years Helen has had experience of working in two private practice firms based in the North West of England.  Having been promoted to Senior Associate in her most recent role, Helen was an active participant in the business development and was a member of the firm’s marketing committee. 

Helen is often described as an approachable patent attorney.  She is focused on making a real difference to our clients by helping them to develop effective strategies to protect their intellectual property and finding innovative solutions to problems.  She believes in the importance of building good relationships with clients and taking the time to understand their businesses and their goals in order to give relevant advice. 

Helen is an active person and enjoys spending time with her little girl as well as walking, running and snowboarding in her spare time.
