Jade joined the Life Sciences group of HGF in February 2022 as a qualified UK and European Patent Attorney.
Prior to being a Patent Attorney, Jade was a postdoctoral fellow at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology (MRC LMB) in Cambridge. During her time as an academic, she investigated diverse subjects including the blood brain barrier, mechanisms of cell death and embryonic development.
Jade’s experience in academia means she understands the patenting process from academics' point of view and is ideally placed to work alongside universities’ technology transfer departments and their academics.
Jade’s main areas of focus in patent practice are on antibodies, vaccines and medical treatments. She has experience with drafting and filing applications, prosecution, freedom-to-operate analyses, third party observations, EPO oppositions and appeals, and providing filing strategies. She also advises clients on prosecution in many foreign jurisdictions.
Jade enjoys being a member of the HGF Venture team with Kerry Rees to provide IP due diligence services to life science investors. As a consequence, Jade also works with early stage companies to help them align their IP strategies with their business plan to maximum the return on investment.
Jade is fluent in English and Cantonese.
