Griffith Hack has again been recognised as a leader in intellectual property in Australia following the release of the 2024 edition of The Legal 500 Australia guide.

Griffith Hack received a Tier 2 ranking for the fourth year running, maintaining its standing as the only specialist IP services firm to be ranked in either Tier 1 or 2, demonstrating the firm’s capacity to rival larger international firms in technical capability and engagement management.

The ranking decisions are made on merit and include interviews conducted by the Legal 500 team with Group Counsel and private practice lawyer clients. One such client testimonial said, “Griffith Hack are skilled in litigation and IP patent submissions. They have a diverse team with good skills. They are good collaborators.”

Prestigious ranking for one of our own

Additionally, Griffith Hack principal Derek Baigent has been recognised as one of Australia’s leaders in intellectual property, receiving the prestigious ranking of Leading Individual. Derek has received this honour every year since 2019.

Also recognised in the listing were key lawyers Kellie Stonier, Gavin Adkins, Leanne Oitmaa, Jack Collings and Rachael Lopez who are based in our offices throughout Australia.
