Making Her Mark in the Law and the World of Business; Kara Bearfield, Trade Mark Attorney at Forresters My Dream Job


Byline: KATIE McLOUGHLIN

CLIENT representation, liaising with television networks and pop bands and protecting established brands make up just part of the day for trade mark attorney, Kara Bearfield, from Forresters.

Forresters is one of the top intellectual property (IP) law firms in the UK. With expertise across a broad range of IP, including patents, designs, trade marks and copyright, its client base includes the Premiere League and Cristal Champagne.

Besides offices in London, Birmingham and, most recently, Birkenhead, Forresters also operates before the European Patent Office via its Munichbased office, and in Russia and its neighbouring states through associated offices in Moscow.

Kara works as a trade mark attorney at Forresters' new Birkenhead office.

She says: "I obtain legal protection for the trade marks used by companies and individuals in connection with the sale of their goods and services. Once protection is put in place, I actively help my clients to police and defend their trade mark rights."

Before she joined Forresters, Kara gained a BSc (Hons) in Applied and Human Biology from Aston University.

She also has an MSc which involved Management of Intellectual Property from Queen Mary, University of London, and a qualification as a Registered UK and European Trade Mark Attor ney.

She said: "Despite reading Biology at university, I always wanted to use this knowledge in a corporate environment. I started my career working in trainee roles as trade mark attorney positions can be difficult to find. After submitting my CV to recruitment consultants, I got an interview for a trade mark trainee post at BATMark Limited.

"I subsequently moved to private practice and continued training in trade marks and patents. I decided to specialise in trade marks, and have practiced exclusively upon the matter since 2000," said Kara.
