An award winning firm
In recognition of our work, we continue to be awarded, ranked and positively endorsed by independent research organisations.
Below are a few examples of the recognition that our commitment to client service and to the industry overall has delivered in recent times:
“A respected presence on the market for over a century, Wrays remains one of the largest privately owned IP specialists in the country. One of the key differentiators of the group is its integrated patent and dispute resolution service, which allows its discerning clients to enjoy a top-notch, one-stop IP experience. The acclaimed practice is led by chairman Gary Cox, who draws judiciously on his previous experience as a patent examiner and comfortably traverses the contentious/non-contentious IP divide. Further technical dexterity is supplied in abundance by Todd Shand, Peter Caporn and Linda Kennaugh. A chemist by trade, Shand focuses his prosecution offering on both small molecule pharmaceuticals and hydrometallurgy. Also operating in the chemistry space, Caporn focuses on mineral processing and chemical engineering technologies, serving happy patrons both domestically and abroad. Meanwhile, biochemistry PhD holder Kennaugh dazzles onlookers with her knowledge of antibody technologies. Joining Wrays in 2022 from Pearce IP, Grant Shoebridge is a highly sought-after patent attorney with specialist expertise in immunology.”

“Perth-headquartered Wrays prides itself on being one of the largest and oldest independent IP specialists in Australia. Its nimbleness, flexibility and competitive pricing enable the team to better suit businesses’ individual needs, to which one patron testifies as follows: “Wrays understands our brand, distribution strategy, roadmap and budget; and subsequently tailored our trademark strategy accordingly.” Leading the line is national practice head Jennifer McEwan, whose experience and expertise in the field of trademarks greatly impresses service users. She plays a crucial role in developing brand protection strategies for growing businesses and private companies. Another name to be kept on speed dial is principal Marie Wong, whose versatility allows her to work on both contentious and non-contentious matters with aplomb.”

“Wrays enjoyed yet another wonderful year in 2021: it has remained firmly in the ascendant and witnessed one of the biggest upticks of instructions coming through, despite the trials of the pandemic. Recently celebrating its centennial anniversary, it has had a stellar track record of attracting and retaining the best and the brightest patent attorneys from the profession. Within the past 18 months it has recruited three senior principals from its competitors. Wrays particularly prides itself on its complete independence, client-oriented service, technical supremacy and commercial savviness, as attested by one of its patrons: “They always have detailed knowledge of the matters in which they are involved and a firm grasp of both the technology and the legal and strategic aspects of those matters on behalf of their clients.”
