Our Capabilities

We use our global experience to support life sciences clients from early R&D to commercial launch, and beyond.

All of our lawyers/attorneys have had significant overseas experience, and more than 85% are qualified outside Australia, including in New Zealand, the United States, and Europe.

We prosecute patent and trade mark applications around the world, coordinate and execute local and multi-jurisdictional litigation strategies, and support regional and global business development activities and licensing deals.

All of our patent lawyers and attorneys have chemistry or biological science degrees, many to PhD level.
