I love seeing great ideas become reality. My days are spent developing & legally protecting innovation, branding & design.
Intellectual Property can bring significant value to a business. I work closely with clients in a broad range of industries and assist clients to identify, protect, register, commercialise and enforce their intellectual property rights, both in Australia and internationally.
A focus of mine is to assist designers and brand developers in selecting the best name as a brand and the protection and commercialisation of trade marks and works of copyright.
