Natalie joined Murgitroyd in 2016 as a paralegal in the Glasgow office. As a Senior Patent Paralegal, Natalie provides paralegal support throughout the patent prosecution process, handles day-to-day deadline management, and attends to the legal requirements of patent applications worldwide from filing to grant for large corporate clients, particularly in the US and in the chemistry and life sciences, electronic, and mechanical sectors.
