As one of the few IP attorney firms in Australia remaining completely independent, Baxter IP, established in 2007, makes its debut in the IAM Patent 1000 this year. The technically accomplished team of IP experts has all the scientific areas covered by leveraging industry-specific know-how. Pacing the outfit is founder Chris Baxter, who draws judiciously upon his medical expertise to advise a client base that comprises multinational corporations, universities and SMEs. Ex-patent examiner and hearings assistant Martin Earley currently heads the physics and engineering group. “He has a deep domain knowledge of the necessary actions and specifications, to incorporate into the patent applications.” With more than 25 years’ experience in intellectual property, Seán Klinkradt utilises his extensive academic background in biochemistry and neuroscience to safeguard his patrons’ intangible assets.
