I am a Registered Foreign Lawyer in the Intellectual Property Group, based in our Hong Kong office. As a registered medical practitioner, pharmacist and lawyer, with extensive experience in the global medical industry, I bring a unique background to advise our clients on a broad range of matters in the life sciences space. Outside of my knowledge of hospital medicine, I have a strong background in the regulation and marketing requirements of medicines and devices. I have worked as a Medical Officer (Prescription Medicine) for a government regulator, as well as the Head of Clinical Review for a major European Notified Body. My work in the medical industry has seen me responsible for a range of areas including: medical affairs, government affairs, corporate compliance, business management, regulatory affairs, technology acquisition, reimbursement and clinical affairs.
I have spent the last decade living and working for medical companies in Australia, the USA and Hong Kong. I have handled medical product registrations across all major regulated jurisdictions, and I have a deep understanding of the needs of international life sciences clients. I have a specific interest in medical product regulation and understand the increasingly complex regulatory landscape for these products.
I look to advise our clients in a number of life sciences areas including IP issues, regulatory issues, marketing authorisations, as well as clinical trial and R&D agreements.
