“IP can be a business’s greatest asset. It must be handled with great care by practitioners who stay up to date with legal developments and fully understand their client’s commercial objectives.”

Rhys works with Griffith Hack’s law team and attorneys on intellectual property, licensing and research commercialisation matters. He advises clients on a broad range of commercial issues, including IP protection, corporate structuring and commercialisation strategy.

Rhys assists clients to clearly and comprehensively understand their legal risks, so they are best placed to make commercial decisions that align with their risk appetite and strategic direction. He has assisted international, national and start-up innovators in science and technology industries, to achieve successful outcomes on a range of IP matters.
