Sharon Mitchell

A senior business lawyer with specialist expertise in intellectual property and IT
Corporate & Commercial Team


I work closely with directors, managers and entrepreneurs to optimise key legal aspects of their organisation such as intellectual property rights, IT contracts, funding, acquisitions, joint ventures and day-to-day operations. I am also an experienced adviser on international channels to market, including multi-level marketing and franchising.

My wide range of client work and experience includes working in house and providing legal awareness to other professionals. This brings a breadth of expertise that allows me to quickly identify the legal implications of an organisation’s situation and objectives, whether transactional or ongoing. I help clients to define strategies that enable them to achieve those objectives with the minimal risk to their venture.
