Loraine entered the IP arena in 1976 when she joined Spoor & Fisher. Her initial duties, whilst in the employ of this large and respected IP firm in South Africa included patent formality work and, in particular, renewals. Some years later she progressed to trade mark matters (in addition to patents, exclusively in Malawi and Zambia).
Loraine brought her extensive experience in IP matters to de Chalains® and has been with the firm since inception.
Currently she handles a variety of IP matters and specialises in patent formality work. She also makes a valuable contribution heading up the accounts department of the firm. During her spare time (when she is not at the office) Loraine enjoys reading and playing bowls.
