Senior Associate

As physicist and former software developer, I am qualified in – and routinely work across – a broad range of technological fields, including mechanics, material science, electronics, automation and information technology.

I frequently work with technology that relates to oil production (drilling equipment and geophysical surveys), oil well prospecting (impedance, nuclear and MNR), medical devices, optics, sustainable energy technology, general mechanics, electrical, IT and driver-less transportation systems such as trucks and trains. I welcome the opportunity to work with clients across the spectrum, from individual inventors to large service providers and suppliers of equipment for the mining or oil and gas industries.

With 24 years’ experience in the field of patents and designs, I aspire to gain an understanding of my clients’ innovations before providing relevant Patent and/or Trade Mark Attorney services. I enjoy drafting patent specifications, conducting patent and design searches, filing and prosecuting patent and/or design applications, and providing patentability and infringement analysis.

I regularly advise clients seeking patent and/or design protection for innovations in Australia as well as overseas, particularly across Latin-America and the United States. I am also able to assist clients with matters that require a knowledge and understanding of German and Spanish, including translations, understanding technical documentation, as well as preparation of patent documentation (focusing particularly on briefs and claims) in both languages.
