Sarah Mountain's Service Teams
Sarah is an Associate at Wedlake Bell LLP, specialising in commercial and intellectual property law.
Sarah advises clients on brand protection and intellectual property right enforcement. Her focus is on "soft IP", with trade mark and copyright disputes being a particular focus.
Sarah has experience in disputes before the High Court (including the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court), the County Court, the UK Intellectual Property Office, the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the Information Commissioner's Office and domain name dispute resolution organisations (WIPO, Nominet). As part of a large ongoing cross-border litigation, Sarah also works closely with overseas lawyers and has attended a number of hearings in the Amsterdam District Court and the Dutch Court of Appeal.
Sarah works closely with in-house counsel. On a day to day basis, she also supports the procurement and sales teams of a number of clients, to the extent that her role is akin to in-house counsel in many respects.
Sarah joined Wedlake Bell in September 2011 as a trainee solicitor and qualified in September 2013. She also completed a four month secondment with a leading consumer organisation and worked as part of the client's in-house legal team during this time.
Sarah also provides regular on-site assistance to one of Wedlake Bell's major clients. As part of a team of four, this involves Sarah attending drop in sessions at the client's offices to provide guidance on day to day contractual matters and ad hoc issues that arise.
