A multi-jurisdictional approach - Pizzeys offers a team of professionals that is distinct relative to others in the IP landscape in Australia and New Zealand. Many of our attorneys have multi-jurisdictional qualifications and expertise. Our diversity ensures that our domestic clients receive the required expertise to secure commercially relevant protection in markets of importance and also ensures an appreciation of the needs of our foreign clients.
Office experience and knowledge - Many of our attorneys have substantial experience working in-house with IP Australia, the Australian Patent and Trade Mark Office. Particularly, a number of our attorneys have worked as examiners of patents, whilst others have held executive positions with the Office. With this background, our team can provide unmatched insight into prosecution, as well as higher level opposition and re-examination procedures before IP Australia. We maintain a close working relationship with IP Australia, facilitated by the close proximity of our Canberra office to the head office and centre of management.
A technology transfer background - Our team includes attorneys that have experience in technology transfer environments, both locally and internationally. As such, we are well aware of the issues facing in-house teams, technology transfer officers and management. We can provide advice that appreciates the needs and is sensitive to the requirements of such clients.
A highly qualified team - The attorneys on the Pizzeys team are highly qualified, having substantial experience in the patent and trade mark arena, with many having higher degrees in their respective technical and legal fields. Our attorneys are continually involved in updating and evolving their technical and legal expertise through attendance at conferences and seminars. In many instances our attorneys are actively involved in presenting at such events. We are in a position to provide the technical expertise needed to ensure commercially relevant protection for securing our clients’ inventions in all technical arts that may be subject to patent protection in Australia, New Zealand and globally. Likewise, Pizzeys’ highly qualified trade marks team has proven expertise in establishing, maintaining and enforcing our clients’ trade mark rights in Australia, New Zealand and overseas.
