Charlotte Russell

Executive Assistant


Charlotte started working for CIPA in August 2015 as the Membership and Events Coordinator. After two years, she became the Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive and the Head of Media & Public Affairs (Lee Davies and Neil Lampert). 

Charlotte is responsible for responding to correspondence and other enquiries on behalf of Lee and Neil where necessary and appropriate. She frequently books attendance for them at conferences and events and also arranges their travel and accommodation. Charlotte regularly schedules internal and external meetings and also takes care of the day-to-day diary management of the office. She is accountable for the receiving, distributing and filing of incoming electronic and written correspondence, including official communication that is often highly confidential.

In addition to this, Charlotte provides administrative support to a number of CIPA’s committees including: the Patents Committee, the Litigation Committee, the Trade Marks Committee, the Design & Copyrights Committee and the IP Commercialisation Committee. Charlotte assists the committee Chairs in the preparation, collation and distribution of meeting agendas, books meeting rooms, sends out meeting invitations and arranges refreshments where appropriate. Charlotte attends the committee meetings, and is responsible for taking detailed notes- she then follows this up by preparing formal minutes of meetings in conjunction with committee Chairs.

In her spare time, Charlotte enjoys attending gigs and music festivals. She also (sometimes) goes to the gym- which she’s enjoys considerably less!
