Victor has worked in the Australian Patent Office as a Patent Examiner for over 7 years. He has examined patent applications in various engineering technologies including autonomous vehicles, smart monitoring and communication systems, land vehicles, aircrafts and engines. Victor’s time at the Patent Office has provided valuable experience in becoming thoroughly familiar with Australian examination practice allowing him the insight into what examiners are looking for and applies this knowledge when assisting to draft and prosecute applications for clients.
