With experience as a prosecuting patent attorney and a technical background in chemistry, Gavin’s practice now centres around IP litigation and commercial legal advice. Gavin’s aim is to come to grips with the technology, commercial landscape and legal challenges quickly and move on to providing pragmatic and candid advice.

In his previous roles and during his time at Griffith Hack he has assisted clients with litigation raising issues in patents, designs, trade marks, the Australian Consumer Law, contractual disputes, domain names and copyright infringement.
Gavin has been published in leading industry journals, written chapters in IP reference texts and received university prizes for his academic performance.
However, Gavin is most satisfied when he’s helped a client achieve a great result. “It’s really satisfying helping clients work through tough situations to achieve a commercial result.”
