Pavan Samra
IA Paralegal

Pavan currently works as an IA Paralegal, dealing primarily with trade mark matters across several industries ranging from fashion, publishing, and retail. Having graduated in 2016 with a law degree from the University of Leicester, he worked in IP for 3 years where he was one of the managers overseeing the translation and validation of patents across Europe.

The novelty and fast-paced nature of the of the patent industry – and the IP sector in general – cemented his interest in IP and encouraged him to pursue a career in trade marks (though this was also due in part to the fact that patents are too technical for his liking). He gained a first-hand appreciation of the commercial value and significance of IP to a range of organisations, from global tech and pharma companies to SMEs, as well as an overview of the similarities between the two, for example, the legal/filing framework and constant deadlines.

Outside of work, he enjoys going to the gym, gaming, and (re)watching Peep Show and/or The Office.
