Areas of Expertise
Yasmin provides advice on intellectual property disputes and works with clients across a number of industry sectors including retail, technology, media, food and leisure.
She has experience in dealing with disputes relating to trade marks, patents, copyright and designs as well as the related areas of passing off, defamation and misuse of confidential information. She has worked on cases before the High Court, the Court of Appeal, Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC) and the UK Intellectual Property Office Tribunal. Yasmin was also involved in coordinating a worldwide trade mark dispute with concurrent US and UK court proceedings.
In addition to the contentious aspects of Intellectual Property, Yasmin advises on non-contentious matters such as the registrability of IP rights and the exploitation of existing rights through, for example, licensing. Since qualification Yasmin has developed a specialism in UK and EU Competition law, and has so far advised on complex matters involving anti-competitive agreements, selective distribution, abuse of dominance, block exemptions and hardcore restrictions such as price fixing, as well as references to the Competition and Markets Authority.
