She spent several years as head of trade marks for an international law firm and, more recently, worked for an international boutique IP law practice. Lindsey joined Wilson Gunn in 2019.

She provides strategic advice on portfolio management and carries out brand audits. She has experience of enforcement and preservation of trade mark rights, including pre-litigation advice and conducting hearings before the UK Intellectual Property Office. She also has extensive experience of launching and defending trade mark opposition, revocation and invalidity proceedings in the UK, EU and internationally.
