Angela is involved in advising clients on all aspect of Intellectual Property and how this impacts the commercial decisions of their businesses.

Once the patents are granted Angela can provide appropriate advice for the exploitation and commercialisation of the inventions, patents and technology. Angela is passionate about obtaining patents of commercial value for the client and tries to discourage clients from having patents just for the sake of having patents.
