Rachael Ward

DIRECTOR / CHARTERED TRADE MARK ATTORNEY

Rachael is a Chartered Trade Mark Attorney with extensive experience in trade mark law, having started her career in 1994 in the trade mark department at Interbrand, the world’s leading brand consultancy. Rachael qualified as a trade mark attorney with Clifford Chance in London and over the next decade managed the trade mark porfolios for many large brand owners. She’s worked as principal contact for Whitbread, Costa, Technicolor, Carlton Television, ONdigital, Fred Perry, Kangol and has extensive experience in the FMCG sector including Mars.

Rachael recently graduated from Edinburgh University with a masters degree (LLM) in Intellectual Property Law. She’s a Member of the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA), a Professional Representative before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EU IPO), and a Member of the European Communities Trade Mark Association (ECTA). She has contributed to the UK Trade Mark Handbook, has published several articles on the subject and is currently a committee member of the International Trademark Association (INTA). During her time at Clifford Chance LLP she was Director of the Trade Marks Group.

Her speciality and joy is coming up with bespoke creative solutions that really work for clients, rather than force them into an off-the-shelf solution. It’s this way of working that builds a successful relationship and provides real value for the client.

"I genuinely love the work I do. I find trade marks fascinating and I love providing a service that clients like and value."
