Emma BlakeI was previously a private practice lawyer at a large international law firm in the UK, specialising in IP and commercial contract law. I moved here in 2011 to take up a role as Commercial Manager in Rolls-Royce’s Marine business with the aim of being here for 12 -18 months. Like most international people who come to work in the Sunnmøre region, I got absolutely drawn in by the beauty of the place, its culture and the people. One partner, two little people and one never ending house project later and I am still here. I still wake up every day and amazed at the beauty of the place – even in the sideways rain! The role of a Commercial Manager involves being a link between sales teams, legal, financial, insurance, and export control functions and business leaders, allowing you to see all the elements which play a contractual relationship. Not only did the role involve drafting, negotiating and advising on the interpretation of contracts but also advising on the resulting commercial risks and how to mitigate them. I had the opportunity to negotiate and advise on wide range of commercial agreements with suppliers, customers and collaboration partners across Europe, Asia and South America. I have also been involved in large scale product liability programmes, developing claims management processes, negotiating settlement agreements and developing customer communication strategies. Intellectual Property has always been one of my passions and in 2015 I had the opportunity to move into the role of IP Manager. This gave me the opportunity to work across a portfolio of both traditional mechanical products and digital technology. I was able to shape and implement processes for managing Intellectual Property across the whole lifecycle of rights and advised on Intellectual Property issues in a range of commercial contracts from non-disclosure agreements, supplier agreements, employments contracts, collaboration agreements, sales agreements and licencing agreements.
