I am a senior associate in our Intellectual Property Group, based in Sydney. I advise clients from a range of sectors as diverse as life sciences, engineering, telecoms, food & beverage, fashion and furniture on all aspects of IP law.
My main focus is on patent matters, in particular patent litigation, where I have acted for clients in relation to a large variety of technologies including pharmaceuticals, mining, telecommunications, and banking and payment systems. In the patent space, I also assist clients with more strategic intellectual property matters, such as licensing, and freedom to operate opinions.
I also assist clients with trademarks matters. The type of work I do in this space includes advice in relation to trade mark protection and enforcement strategy. I also act for clients in more contentious trade mark matters, such as trade mark opposition, and trade mark infringement proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia, including acting for a client in the Federal Court of Australia in relation to the use of a registered trade mark as part of a Google AdWords strategy. I also assist clients in relation to domain name disputes.
