"Challenging IP requires high level strategic advice"

Anne specialises in trade marks but her practice spans other areas of IP including copyright and designs, consumer protection and IP agreements. While she enjoys the everyday workings of an IP firm, she loves nothing more than the challenge of complex IP matters and providing high level strategic advice.

In 2013, Anne became the first female president of the Institute of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys of Australia, a role that allowed her to provide a female voice to a male dominated profession.

With IP experience spanning more than 25 years, Anne manages the brands of numerous Australian and multi-national companies. Many of these companies have been clients for well over a decade, which Anne attributes to her ability to speak frankly and to cut to the chase.
