Memberships & organisations

Anna is a member of CIPA, EPI and IPSOC.

“Our attorney at Mathys & Squire is absolutely outstanding. Anna is very commercially focused, very easy to deal with, very practically minded and also incredibly thorough. She has taken on full control of an extremely complex and important IP portfolio. She has coped very well with all the changes in our business over the past few months. I don’t have the same technology background as she has and she is able to explain the science clearly to me. I would rate her very, very highly.”
