Shirin Hussein joined the commercial team in 2022 as a Commercial and Intellectual Property Solicitor. She qualified in 2019 and had 6 years’ inhouse legal experience before that.

Shirin’s areas of expertise broadly span commercial contracts, commercial advisory and commercialisation of intellectual property. This includes drafting, negotiating and advising on:

  • Commercial contracts including confidentiality agreements, collaboration agreements, consultancy agreements, framework agreements (master service agreements), and associated sub-contracts;
  • Terms to protect intellectual property and brand identity;
  • Assignments and licences of intellectual property; and
  • Data processing agreements, data sharing agreements, and standard contractual clauses.

Prior to joining Harper James, Shirin worked in a wide range of inhouse counsel roles, including within the pharmaceutical industry, both at a pharmaceutical company and a global contract research organisation, and within the higher education sector.

During her work in the university sector, she worked on commercialisation of academic expertise, contracting with external clients globally across industry (from start-ups to established industry leaders), charities, governmental agencies and intergovernmental organisations (IGOs). Shirin worked on a broad range of project types, negotiating contracts internationally for projects that delivered anything from education expertise and laboratory services to development of novel communications technology and building space satellites. 

Shirin’s qualifications include an LLM in Law and Technology from Tel Aviv University, which is in the heart of the start-up nation, and she has a particular interest in supporting businesses that seek to protect and commercialise their intellectual property.
