Sophie spearheads Ogier’s global Intellectual Property (IP) group bringing over a decade of top tier international experience to her practice, which encompasses the clearance, prosecution, exploitation and enforcement of the full suite of IP rights, including brands and trade marks, copyright, industrial designs and patents, throughout the world.

Background and experience

Throughout her career Sophie has effectively and creatively managed the IP portfolios of some of the world’s leading companies across a wide variety of sectors, first with a focus on the EU and Asia while at King & Wood Mallesons LLP (previously SJ Berwin LLP) in London and, later, with a focus on the Caribbean, Latin America and offshore financial world as partner at a specialist IP firm based in the Cayman Islands, where she led the practice. Sophie is widely recognised as a seasoned expert in Caribbean trade marks and Caribbean Intellectual Property throughout the region, as well as in offshore financial centres, carefully guiding clients through this diverse and sometimes difficult to navigate terrain with her in-depth knowledge.
