I specialise in intellectual property, information technology and commercial law.
In addition to managing and protecting the intellectual property portfolios of a range of New Zealand and international businesses I also advise on acquisitions and dispositions, joint ventures, restructuring, and the preparation and negotiation of commercial contracts. Specific areas of focus include the licensing, development and protection of intellectual property portfolios, branding strategies, copyright issues, trade marks and licensing.
I have a number of not-for-profit clients and am privileged to advise a number of iconic national charities and industry organisations.
I enjoy the variety of clients I work with, who range from listed companies to family owned businesses and from government departments to non-profits.
I am a member of the Institute of Directors, the International Trade Mark Association (Law Firm Committee Member), the Intellectual Property Society of Australia and New Zealand and the New Zealand Law Society.
I have a number of governance roles including being a New Zealand Football Executive Committee Member and New Zealand Netball’s appointed Board Member to Netball Central Zone.
