Selina is a solicitor in the Dispute Resolution team, primarily focussing on patent litigation in the life sciences sector.  She joined Carpmaels & Ransford in August 2021, having qualified as a solicitor in 2019.  Selina has experience of litigation in the High Court and Supreme Court of the UK.  During her career, Selina has worked predominantly in the life sciences sector, on cases involving both small molecule drugs and biologics, but she also has experience in the consumer products and telecoms sectors.  Selina has assisted clients with a variety of patents, including second medical use patents and formulation patents, and has experience in both patent invalidity and infringement proceedings.  Selina has also worked on matters relating to the grant of SPCs for medicinal products, and on jurisdictional issues including anti-suit injunctions.

Before joining Carpmaels & Ransford, Selina trained and practised at one of London’s leading IP firms, gaining experience in many aspects of patent litigation, as well as general commercial litigation and non-contentious IP matters.  During her training contract, Selina also spent 6 months on secondment at a multinational medical devices company, gaining experience in various areas of commercial and regulatory law.  Prior to her legal training, Selina obtained a Masters degree in Chemistry from the University of Oxford and spent her final year investigating the possibility of “artificial photosynthesis”, using enzymes as renewable catalysts for the conversion of water into oxygen.

Outside of work, Selina enjoys creating handmade cards and gifts, and is also a keen baker.
