Her work includes software development agreements, website documentation, IT services contracts, intellectual property assignments, data processing terms and commercial non-disclosure agreements.
During her time at VWV, she has worked with a broad range of clients, including individuals, tech start-ups, universities, healthcare practices and large corporations and understands the different needs and requirements that these clients have.
Through working with clients in these sectors, Penelope is developing a deeper understanding of their particular needs and interests. With a particular interest in the intersection of these areas, for example in digital health, bio tech and intelligent drug discovery, she is also actively working on developing a better academic understanding of the nature of the work our clients do.
Before joining VWV as a trainee, Penelope spent two years as a paralegal in media and reputation litigation, including aspects of internet law, privacy law, information law and cyber security. She has an enduring interest in the intersection of the technology and media sectors, particularly in intellectual property and internet law, having written about the liability of internet intermediaries and about the challenges of online copyright enforcement during her legal studies.
Penelope graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2012 with a 2:1 degree in Philosophy. She achieved a Distinction on the Legal Practice Course through part time study whilst working full time as a media litigation paralegal.
Outside work, Penelope enjoys badminton, climbing and hiking with friends.
