Clarkslegal LLP - Solicitors in Reading and London

Our People

Chrysilla de Vere

I am the Commercial partner within the firm’s Corporate, Commercial and Technology Team, and head of the firm’s Data Protection Team.

I am a dual qualified solicitor, having considerable experience both in the UK and abroad, acting for start up ventures, SMEs and international corporates.

Whilst I act for clients within a diverse range of industries, my area of focus is working with digital businesses to protect, acquire, licence or sell their intellectual property assets. This includes providing strategic advice and negotiating on their behalf to maximise commercial value. 

I act for distributors both locally and internationally who license brands, products and services. Of course with any online business, I assist them with their web and mobile terms and conditions of use and branding. I also regularly assist clients with:

  • a broad range of commercial contracts (procurement, outsourcing, agency, distribution and supplier agreements);
  • asset and share sale transactions;
  • partnerships and joint ventures;
  • GDPR compliant processing agreements, privacy policies and data protection advisory;
  • Trade mark protection and licensing.
