Silver - Individuals: prosecution and strategy
“Head and shoulders above the competition,” Gadens’ practice is “of the highest quality”. “More responsive than other firms”, it offers comprehensive trademark advice and services “at a reasonable cost”. A specialist in intellectual property, franchising and competition and consumer law, Adam Walker is “extremely hardworking and efficient, and always comes up with effective solutions”. WTR 1000 newcomer Hazel McDwyer skilfully handles everything from brand protection to enforcement. One client exclaims: “Hazel is one of the best IP lawyers in Australia. Her advice is always on target and sensitive to budgets and timelines. She is also the most pragmatic and commercial-savvy practitioner I have had the pleasure of meeting. I can count on Hazel to do what is best for our company, rather than what is best for the firm.” Kerry Awerbuch runs a successful practice focused on trademark prosecution, infringement, opposition and clearance, while Donna Bartlett takes charge on the transactional front in addition to advising on brand strategy and protection.
