The competition law aspects of intellectual property work are particularly interesting for me. The application of two sets of inherently conflicting legal rules allows a lot of room for interpretation and as a result I am able to experience a huge variety of potential issues. I enjoy working across different legal cultures, in particular guiding overseas clients and accommodating their needs within the local environment. I find that translating an international company’s requirements and methods of doing business to the local environment, while retaining compliance with the prevailing legislative and regulatory framework, presents me with an intellectual challenge. The environment at the firm is team orientated and cooperative. I really enjoy working with my colleagues and being part of the corporate culture emerging from an accumulating practice.
