IPKat team members' updates: news and farewells

Every now and then, The IPKat runs updates on its (human) bloggers' activities and what they have been up to over the past few months ... besides blogging.

As readers will see, our team has been quite busy and there is some exciting news. Sadly, we also have to say farewell to one of our Kats.

Here we go:


Eleonora Rosati has been working on exploring the role, activity and legacy of 20 years of case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the field of copyright: her new book, Copyright and the Court of Justice of the European Union, will be published soon (February 2019) by Oxford University Press. 

Nicola Searle has also a book, co-authored with Barbara Townley and Phillip Roscoe, coming out soon: it is Creating Economy (Oxford University Press). Unfortunately, we also say farewell to her: we thank Nicola for all her work over the past few years, and hope to collaborate with her again in the near future!


Rosie Burbidge has joined Gunnercooke LLP as an IP partner in their London office. She has also written a book: European Fashion Law: A Practical Guide from Start-up to Global Success (forthcoming c. Feb 2019). She has built a companion website for her book and has an associated Instagram (@europeanfashionlaw) and Twitter (@eurofashionlaw) accounts.

We congratulate Mirko Brüss for the birth of his third child, a baby boy named Friedrich: welcome!

Last week, Nedim Malovic started working with the IP team at Hannes Snellman at their Stockholm office.

Last summer, Mathilde Pavis was appointed as a visiting scholar at the University of Victoria (BC, Canada) funded by the Canada-UK Foundation to develop scholarship on comparative performers' rights. She will soon be sailing to new shores again by joining TC Beirne Law School at the University of Queensland (Brisbane, Australia), for a semester, to work on the impact of Artificial Intelligence technologies and neighbouring rights. Mathilde co-edited a book on contemporary intangible cultural heritage and the law which was published last September.

Eibhlin Vardy has written the UK chapter in the forthcoming 2nd Edition of Globe Law & Business' International Patent Litigation – Developing an Effective Strategy which is due for release in late 2018. She plans to take some time out from private practice - which will free-up more time for blogging - before new beginnings in IP during the course of 2019.


Verónica Rodríguez Arguijo is celebrating 2 years with the IPKat team (first as an InternKat and now as the TechieKat) and has welcomed her first nephew.

Hayleigh Bosher has moved to Brunel University London as a lecturer in IP law. She has been also appointed as an editor of the European Trade Mark Reports. 


Rose Hughes passed the European Qualifying Exams (EQEs) earlier this year and is now a fully-fledged European Patent Attorney, and Associate at Reddie & Grose LLP

Cecilia Sbrolli is currently part of the EU Antitrust and Regulatory group at law firm K&L Gates in Brussels. In June, Cecilia was admitted to the Brussels Bar and last week passed the final exam of the Italian Bar.


Congratulations to all our Kats! And now ... back to blogging!

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
