Experience

Lauris has a strong science background with a degree in Immunology and Biochemistry; and a PhD and 6 years post-doctoral experience covering cell expression systems, protein purification, mass spectrometry, protein crystallography and bioinformatics. Her patent work reflects this broad base.

Lauris is particularly adept with difficult patent cases, both European and US, getting important grants with commercially useful claims for clients. This includes European opposition cases where her attention to detail and tenacity are core to her success.

Having worked with many US in-house counsels including those in the food industry, DNA sequencing technology, microbiome bioinformatics, medical AI applications and antibody therapies to draft applications and manage large European and global portfolios, Lauris knows how to best assist in-house counsel. She adapts her way of working to whatever fits best with the way the in-house team likes to work, effectively becoming another member of the team.

She uses this proactive approach in assisting all her clients and is known for being on the telephone often to establish a rapport with the client to understand their science and how to guide them commercially.
