Our Expertise

Our attorneys and trainees have a wide range of scientific degrees extending from chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, genetics, microbiology, plant sciences and zoology through to physics, electronics, telecommunications and mechanical engineering. Most of our attorneys hold further degrees and many have PhDs.

A number of our attorneys have worked in-house within the IP departments of multinational corporations. This enhances our ability to assist in the active management of both IP portfolios and inventors.
