16 May Serjeants welcomes new paralegal
As part of our continued expansion, Serjeants is delighted to welcome Rachel Oldfield to the team, who joins us as a paralegal.
Rachel will be supporting clients with patent formalities, providing assistance with filing patents, both nationally and internationally, as well as with cost estimates, legal documentation such as Powers of Attorney and assignments, European validation procedures and all other patent formality matters.
On joining Serjeants, Rachel commented:
“It is very exciting to be part of such a dynamic and fast-growing team and I am looking forward to furthering my career as the business continues to expand. Serjeants has a varied portfolio of clients and I’m delighted to be able to support them with their patents.”
Rachel moved to Serjeants from a multinational construction and manufacturing company where she provided support in maintaining a large international patent portfolio. Prior to that her IP career has included managing the trade mark portfolio of a multinational pharmaceutical and health & beauty retailer and being responsible for all aspects of patent administration within private practice. Rachel also holds CIPA, ITMA and ILEx qualifications.
Dean Lacey, partner at Serjeants commented:
“We are thrilled to have Rachel on board. She is a valuable addition to the team and brings with her a wealth of experience from her time in private practice and in-house.”
Rachel will be based at our Leicester office.
