Emma Kirkpatrick

Brands & Trade Marks, In-House Management of TM Portfolios

  • Chartered Trade Mark Attorney

BA (Hons) GDL, MCITMA, CTMA

Emma graduated with a law degree from Staffordshire University in 2017 and qualified as a trade mark attorney in 2020. She has previously been a primary school teacher, worked in hospitality and administrative roles, but it was working as an IP and trade mark paralegal that inspired and started her on the path to becoming a trade mark attorney.

Emma later joined SH&P in September 2023 and is a key member of our Trade Marks team. Her work involves advising businesses on brand strategy, working on a variety of contentious and non-contentious trade mark matters and providing trade mark portfolio management services, such as trade mark clearance searches, filing and prosecution. She has worked with a range of businesses from different industries, such as fashion, cybersecurity, cosmetics, IT, marine technology and food and drink. She provides IP mentoring to local innovation hubs and volunteers for CITMA’s free advice clinics.

In her spare time, Emma enjoys reading, cooking, baking and gardening as well as walking Baxter, her very pampered pup and the apple of her eye.
