Meet our people

Olivia Gray, Senior Associate

"My usual day sees me working on a number of different matters ranging from trade mark registry disputes; advising on IP protection strategies for developing businesses; considering potential intellectual property infringement matters with regard to copyright, trade mark or design rights and/or working on ongoing disputes in the courts.   No two days are the same and the variety of tasks and clients is what keeps the job interesting.   Home life is busy chasing after an active toddler. Pre-Covid may have seen the occasional trip to the theatre after work or dinner out with a friend but now usually culminates in a glass of wine and the TV!"
