Cathy Ayers


Cathy works mainly with UK-based medium-sized organisations, helping them achieve cost-effective trade mark and design protection across the world.

Cathy graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Natural Sciences (specialising in Chemistry) in 1990 and has worked in the Intellectual Property field since that time. She became a qualified Member of what is now the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys by examination in 1994. Cathy subsequently obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in European Competition Law from King’s College London and, more recently, a Postgraduate Certificate and LLM in Intellectual Property Litigation from Nottingham Trent University. As a result, Cathy has a particular interest in contentious matters and dispute resolution.
