POF achieves top ranking for patent prosecution in IAM Patent 1000 2022

We are pleased to announce that POF has been recognised as a Tier 1 (Highly Recommended) firm in the 2022 IAM Patent 1000, applauded for “[having] their customer in their heart and show their genuine interest to help their customer succeed not only in securing the IP protection but also in commercialisation of the IP.”. The firm was also commended for our focus on client relationships, resulting in long-standing cooperation with our clients.

In addition to this ranking, several POF attorneys were recognised for their contributions over the past year. POF Managing Principal Ross McFarlane, along with Special Counsels Saskia Jahn and Mark Williams, Consultant Ray Evans, and principals Edwin Patterson and Matthew Ford were all highlighted for their work in patent prosecution. 

From Phillips Ormonde Fitzpatrick Lawyers (POFL), Deputy Managing Principal Chris Schlicht, and Principal David Longmuir, were commended for their work in IP litigation. Part of this recommendation was given for Chris and David’s work in representing Meat & Livestock Australia in their case that will constitute the very first consideration of the Full Court’s power under Section 105(1A), introduced by the Raising the Bar Act.

We are once again very proud to receive this ranking from IAM, one of the leading global patent directories.
