Aideen Burke (pictured) has joined LK Shields Solicitors as a partner, and also becomes the firm’s new head of intellectual property, technology, media, and data privacy.
The team provides advice to clients in a diverse range of organisations and industries – including technology, media, IT, pharma, and manufacturing.
LK Shields describes Burke as “a highly experienced solicitor”, with broad-ranging expertise in areas that include IP licensing, trade marks, commercial contracts, complex IT and software contracts, film and TV development, media regulation, and data privacy.
She returns to the firm after a number of years working as legal counsel for an animation studio and, subsequently, for a global media-and-telecoms company.
“I look forward to further strengthening the firm’s position as a leader in the areas of IP, media, technology and data privacy,” she said.
David Williams (managing partner) said that the firm was looking forward to continued growth in this area of the law with Burke at the helm.
