Hailing from Winchester, and with over 20 years’ experience as a patent administrator, Annemarie currently works for Chapman IP, a growing firm of patent and trademark attorneys in Southampton. Annemarie is responsible for managing and training paralegals and for the docket management system. She is the senior paralegal to the founding director of the practice, Helga Chapman, and has input into the systems and processes used by the business as a whole. She is responsible for a large case load of global patents and designs and deals with occasional trademark work. Annemarie has found that over the years she has become quite fluent in the Patentese language and no longer sniggers when she comes across the terms flange, member or rod in a specification!
