Experience

Stuart has worked with a wide range of small and large Australian and foreign companies, including those in the food and beverage industry, the medical and animal health industry, the mining industry and the media industry. Stuart has extensive experience in relation to all areas of intellectual property law, with a particular focus on copyright and trade mark disputes, and misleading or deceptive conduct or passing off matters.

Stuart understands that intellectual property disputes can be costly and time consuming for companies, so always looks for creative solutions to resolve disputes at an early stage. However, he appreciates that sometimes the best way to resolve a dispute is to firmly proceed with appropriate legal action.
