FMCG is where Sarah made her name in IP. She joins us here at James & Wells after working in-house for Nestle in the world’s chocolate capital – Switzerland - as a Senior Brand IP Paralegal.
Sarah will be putting her 15 years’ experience to work in our Trade Marks team to help Kiwis get their ideas off the ground and into market.
Outside of work, Sarah loves to cook, travelling to the far corners of the world (it’s a long way from Switzerland to New Zealand!) and spending time with friends and family.
Sarah is based in the Auckland office and assists the Trade Marks team with a wide range of matters including the clearance and registration of trade marks locally and internationally, preparation of evidence of use, and IP portfolio management.
Her particular strengths are in trade marks, designs, and clearance searches and filing strategies.
Sarah is qualified with a Trademark Certificate from the French National Institute for Intellectual Property.
