Trade marks advice, including for businesses who file their own trade mark applications


Owning intellectual property can give a business a competitive advantage, with
exclusivity in a trade mark or product, but intellectual property law is
complex.  You need someone on your side who
is experienced and can guide you through it. 

I am an IP lawyer and trade marks attorney with 30 years' experience in intellectual
property and consumer protection law. I have helped a wide range of blue chip
and SME clients to commercialise their technology, enforce their intellectual
property rights and comply with marketing and labelling laws.  I have
worked for two Big Law commercial firms and a boutique intellectual property
firm and so I am able to provide a premium service at realistic rates. 

I will work with you to find solutions, maximise the value of your IP and
protect your business.  Check out my blog
for some of the latest issues in IP and consumer law.

I am located in Melbourne, Australia but can help clients from across
