Track Record

I have been working as a paralegal for Life Science Law since April and have recently begun an ongoing secondment to the legal team at Amicus Therapeutics at their International headquarters in Marlow.

Here I am assisting with drafting and negotiating a broad variety of agreements including HCP and Consultancy Agreements, Intercompany Agreements, Master Service Agreements, Confidentiality Agreements and Statements of Work. This involves collaborating with business stakeholders and processing contract requests within a contract management system.

I am also supporting Life Science Law with its Regulatory Updates Service which provides developments and advancements in the Laws and Regulations affecting the Life Science Industry across the globe. These updates include providing one of our clients with a dedicated service to provide updates to the changing regulatory landscape surrounding decentralised clinical trials (remote and digital) across a number of International Jurisdictions, including the APAC region.

I have strong oral communication skills for collaborating with business stakeholders in the Life Sciences. In my previous career as a journalist, I was required to write complex stories and orally present them in an accessible manner to a lay audience. I have led multidisciplinary teams in fast-paced newsrooms and can effectively prioritise tasks for business needs.

I have lived in the UK, Qatar, Singapore and New Zealand and take great pleasure in working in International, multidisciplinary teams.
