POF welcomes newest Associate, Helen McFadzean

Phillips Ormonde Fitzpatrick extends a warm welcome to our newest Associate, Helen McFadzean, who recently joined the Electronics, Physics and IT Team in our Melbourne office. She brings with her a wealth of experience in intellectual property (IP) as well as a passion for innovation and new, cutting edge technology – welcome Helen!

Having been a part of the IP profession since 2009, Helen has assisted clients in obtaining patents, designs and trademarks both in Australia and overseas. This has been in a large number of technology areas including automation, smart devices, medical apparatus, automotive technology, audio signal processing, image processing, and subsea mining technology just to name a few. Helen has a history of maintaining excellent client relationships through informative process and proactive learning of her clients’ business – to better understand their needs and commercial objectives.

“I am very excited about joining POF and hope to contribute to the growing success of the team” Helen stated earlier this week. When she’s not at the office, you can find Helen enjoying herself in the great outdoors either kiteboarding or rock climbing, or spending time with her adolescent yellow Labrador puppy.
