Julia’s portfolio encompasses an unusually diverse range of fields, including medical devices, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, mechanical apparatus and software.
With a technical background in biological sciences, Julia’s primary focus is on medical technology, where she has particular experience working in the fields of surgical implants, diagnostic equipment and assays, and microfluidic devices. However, for many years her practise has extended more broadly to include energy storage devices, multimedia entertainment systems and online advertising software. This breadth of experience makes Julia well-placed to handle technologies which cross over the traditional boundaries of life sciences and physics.
Recent work in such cross-sector technologies has included the prosecution of applications relating to medical imaging of the nervous system, intrabody probe localisation, patient monitoring systems and the use of deep learning networks to denoise medical images.
Julia’s practice focuses on the drafting and prosecution of patent applications. She is experienced in representing clients before the European Patent Office and in liaising with local Patent Attorneys to successfully prosecute cases in multiple jurisdictions including the US, China and Japan.

Her clients span a broad range, including large multinational corporations, universities and university spin-outs, and SMEs. Julia also enjoys writing about IP and her articles have appeared in various publications including Intellectual Property Magazine and WIPO Magazine.
