I have over 30 years’ experience advising clients on all aspects of IP. My focus is on providing creative approaches to IP strategy aligned with business strategy.

I have an established track record acting for a range of clients from start-ups to large multinationals which has been built on my reputation as a trusted and experienced business adviser.

My background in chemical engineering provides a platform to understanding the technical merits of innovation across a wide range of fields, particularly in the fields of mineral and hydrocarbon resources and processing, both upstream and downstream, environmental engineering and in automotive technology.

My experience includes representing a multinational energy company’s patent and trade mark interests in Australia for over 20 years; completing numerous patent drafting, prosecution and opposition assignments in hydrocarbon exploration and production; extractive metallurgy including biohydrometallurgy, nickel, copper, uranium and gold hydrometallurgy; managing IP assignments in renewable energy and innovative agricultural methods; and pursuing patent, trade mark and design strategies to promote the global interests of an overseas automotive manufacturer.

I am published author and regular presenter on IP topics to corporate, industry, university and professional services audiences in Australia and internationally.
