Maria is an associate in the IP & Media group. She has a broad practice ranging from advisory work like copyright and related rights and strategic Brexit advice, trade secrets and confidential information, corporate support, licensing, franchising, co-existence and sponsorship agreements, to contentious matters like breach of confidence and malicious falsehood, advertising complaints and investigations, passing off and trade mark infringement litigation.
Maria has a special interest in new and emerging technologies that test the boundaries of the current IP system. She likes considering and stress-testing where those boundaries should lie and how they interact with other areas like data and competition law. She attended in 2018 the advanced training programme in Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property Law at CEIPI, University of Strasbourg.
Maria is particularly interested in copyright and EU law and, before joining Taylor Wessing, she was the first Alexander Chloros scholar at the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg where she worked in the UK Cabinet on a copyright-related case.
