Hilda-Georgina Kwafo-Akoto

Associate

I specialise in intellectual property, commercial contracts including sponsorship agreements and hotel franchise contracts, data protection and technology.

About

I joined Fladgate in May 2022 as a solicitor in the commercial, sports and intellectual property team.

I have experience acting for clients in contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters spanning from intellectual property infringement, licensing agreements, sponsorship agreements and NDAs.

I have keen interest in commercial matters involving clients in the sports sector and I have assisted on commercial agreements for the motorsport industry.

My hobbies include writing blogs on the legal and commercial issues in the sports, entertainment and fashion sectors, and I have been published in The Trademark Lawyer magazine and The Law Society Blog. I also enjoy watching sports such as football and travelling.
