Each month we interview thought leaders in intellectual property, talking about how they were introduced to this area of law, their careers, the legal and commercial issues their industries face and what the future may hold.
This month Stephanie Kay and Antony Craggs interview Ashton Chantrielle, Barrister at 8 New Square. Amongst Ashton’s accolades is the title of Junior IP barrister of the year at the 2020 Managing IP awards. She is also a strong proponent for supporting diversity across the profession and is a member of the Bar Council’s Tech/ Combar BAME group. Ashton discusses her process of becoming a Barrister and some of her recent cases as well as diversity in the profession.
