IAM 1000 reported:
“Dedicating itself solely to the life sciences sector, Pearce IP is a unique phenomenon in Australia: it has assembled the premier life sciences patent attorneys and lawyers in the country and ably assists global pharmaceutical and biotechnology players in crucial patent matters. One enthusiastic patron best sums up the outfit: “Pearce IP is a do-it-all global firm. They can operate as a typical outfit giving pure legal advice but can also operate like an in-house counsel, giving business advice.”
“With a background in molecular biology, namesake litigator Naomi Pearce now spearheads the ensemble with supreme verve. She also receives effusive praise from clientele: “She is the perfect outside counsel to embed in the business. She is an excellent legal thinker and a delight to work with.” “Naomi is very commercially minded and will seek to achieve a settlement to avoid expensive litigation wherever possible, which is not the modus operandi of most large law practices.”
A molecular biologist by trade, Jacinta Flattery-O’Brien draws judiciously upon her doctoral pedigree to provide commercially minded counsel to big names in the biopharmaceutical sector.
Melbourne-based microbiology PhD Chris Vindurampulle recently joined the set. He is a frequent contributor to the research and start-up sector, providing education and mentoring on the topics of identifying, protecting and leveraging intangible assets.
Naomi Pearce says:
“I couldn’t be more proud of our leaders and the team we have assembled. From a standing start to ranking in virtually every notable legal directory in less than 6 years is almost unheard of! The firm and individual rankings in IAM 1000 for 2023 demonstrates the pedigree of our leaders, the calibre of the Pearce IP team, and is a direct reflection of their dedication to their craft and their clients. I congratulate Jacinta and Chris and each and every member of the Pearce IP team for continuing to set the standard in the provision of legal/IP services in Australia.”
