To me, IP is the cornerstone for companies looking to secure their competitive edge, expanding their business operations and capitalising on their investments. I love the challenges involved in IP, and I enjoy applying my knowledge and skill in assisting our clients to overcome potential hurdles in commercialising their innovation.

Sky graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Pharmacology. He went on to complete a Master of Business from Bond University before joining PricewaterhouseCoopers. In his role as an associate advising on business transactions, due diligence and valuations, Sky was actively engaged with the research, valuation and transaction of IP, in particular with patents and trademarks.

Sky’s interests encompass the realms of both science and commerce. Through his involvement in commercial IP transactions he developed a strong appreciation of the varied legal systems around the world and of how IP strategy can vary accordingly from country to country.To consolidate his understanding of the Australian IP legal system and pursue his career as a patent attorney, Sky completed a Master Degree in Intellectual Property from the University of Technology, Sydney.

Sky is a Registered Trade Mark Attorney, a patent specialist and is soon to become a Registered Australian Patent Attorney.
