Rachel handles all aspects of trade mark prosecution with a focus on contentious matters. She has considerable experience in international rebranding programmes assisting clients with the search and selection of brands through to worldwide filing strategies and resulting oppositions, cancellation actions and agreements. Rachel’s clients include well known national and international brands in areas such as consumer electronics, retail, health and leisure, industry components, food and beverage, medical, publishing, banking, insurance and property.
As well as traditional trade mark prosecution work, Rachel’s practice has more recently focused on anti-counterfeiting. She provides strategic advice and assists clients on all elements of anti-counterfeiting including Customs Applications for Action (AFAs), investigations, online monitoring and a range of enforcement options. Rachel’s passion and diligence in this area has helped clients to eradicate counterfeit goods from online marketplaces and secure criminal convictions for sellers of counterfeit goods.
Rachel joined Kilburn & Strode in 2017 having previously worked in both international law firms and boutique trade mark practices. She offers commercially-focused and practical advice to small and large businesses alike.
