Caelia’s over 20 years’ experience in the patent profession is grounded in her strong technical background. Following her physics degree at Oxford, Caelia went on to research her doctorate by studying magnetic interactions at low temperatures. Caelia’s patent portfolio has evolved to reflect her passion for physics, and covers a range of technologies including aeronautics and aerospace, energy and power management, cooling systems, telecoms, thin film technology, and software.
From strategic drafting to focused prosecution, Caelia’s extensive experience enables her to provide clear, commercially astute advice throughout every stage of the patenting process. Caelia specialises in contentious post grant proceedings, with her considerable knowledge in this area leading to a reputation for successfully defending patents in EPO opposition and appeals work.
Caelia enjoys advising a diverse client base that encompasses multinational companies, university spin outs, and direct clients. For all of these, Caelia’s emphasis is upon developing IP strategies that allow clients maximise their existing and potential IP assets in the context of their business needs.
