Moulis Legal announces new appointment

04.07.2018

Moulis Legal is pleased to announce the appointment of Warren Wong as Patent and Trade Marks Attorney, based in our Canberra Office. Partner Director, Shaun Creighton, commented:

Warren’s appointment marks an important milestone for Moulis Legal. Warren’s patent expertise means we now offer a full suite of intellectual property services, with experts in patents, trade marks, designs and copyright. The bolstering of the Moulis Legal intellectual property law team will serve to benefit our clients in protecting, enforcing and commercialising any of their valuable IP rights. I am excited to add such a capable IP professional to our team.

Commenting on his appointment, Warren emphasised the importance of seeking professional advice early on:

Coming from an IP-savvy start-up that is now thriving internationally, I have seen how invaluable strategic IP management can be. Unfortunately, I’ve also seen many businesses and entrepreneurs fall short of capitalising on their IP, especially when they only seek help when things get thorny. Getting the right advice from the beginning, whether it relates to patents, trade marks, designs or copyright, can be crucial to the trajectory and success of a new product or business.

Warren comes to Moulis Legal with a breadth of skill and experience that includes preparing, filing and prosecuting patent, design and trade mark applications, advising on IP infringement and validity, and assisting with IP enforcement and commercialisation matters. Warren has assisted clients from a range of different industries, including:

  • building and construction
  • mining and agriculture
  • clean technology
  • medical devices
  • transport and handling technology
  • fast moving consumer goods
  • general mechanical engineering devices, including fitness equipment, animal care products and toys
