Fiona Stevens

Partner at Gill Jennings & Every LLP

Fiona Stevens is an experienced patent attorney and handles a wide variety of work in the pharmaceutical, chemical and biotechnology fields. The majority of Ms Stevens’ work involves working with UK clients, and she therefore has extensive experience in developing and implementing IP strategies aligned with commercial objectives. Ms Stevens has helped to develop the firm’s suite of fixed price products, in particular the IP audit; this offers a strategic review of a company’s intellectual property, starting with the business plan. Rather than looking at IP rights in isolation, the IP audit provides a complete review of a company’s IP strategy and a roadmap for improving it.

Ms Stevens deliberately tries to avoid becoming too focused in a particular sector, believing that the underlying principles of implementing an IP strategy can be applied across many industries, and to businesses of varying size. That said, she is recognised for her expertise in pharmaceutical lifecycle management, having obtained supplementary protection certificates and patent term extensions for approved drugs in a number of jurisdictions worldwide. She also has a particular interest in second medical use patents and has helped a number of clients achieve commercial success with re-purposed drugs.

Ms Stevens has successfully guided clients in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries through multiple fundraising rounds and partnering successes, helping them to raise more than £200 million in investment over the past three years.
