Personal Profile

Gayle is a Partner in the Commercial and Technology groups within Mishcon Future and a member of the Life Sciences Group, leading on digital health.

She has over 25 years' experience of finding commercial legal solutions for businesses of all sizes, helping them achieve their growth plans through innovative collaborations, protection and exploitation of intellectual property rights, grant funding agreements and trading terms and conditions with customers and suppliers, including universities and the NHS.

Gayle also co-leads our Mishcon GC service and through that service delivers commercial legal advice to a variety of health and tech, life sciences and digital marketing clients, some of whom have no in-house legal function and some of whom have an in-house function that needs additional support. 

Gayle has held non-executive directorships in the healthcare and legal sectors.  She delivers training to various clients and health sector groups on topics such as collaborations and joint ventures, pilot licensing projects and working with NHS customers.
