I care about people and their business goals. So whilst I consider client instructions carefully, I always look to make recommendations that are practical, commercially strategic, and that add value.Warren Chandler - Senior Associate, Patent & Trade Mark Attorney

When you’ve excelled in a particular field for 30 years, you build a name for yourself. When that area of excellence is mastering a scientific approach to IP strategy, you also earn the admiration of both colleagues and clients. But for Warren Chandler, it’s only ever been about creating strong intellectual property assets for his clients.

The claim ‘attention to detail’ tends to be used far too liberally – but Warren’s appetite for detail can be seen in his comprehensive assessments of client’s commercial IP strategies, and it’s something that delivers literal and measurable results. Several Australian companies that Warren has advised from start-up stage have now emerged as large, well-known commercial enterprises with strong intellectual property assets. This is where Warren, and by extension, his clients are well served by his 24 years’ experience as a patent attorney in chemical engineering.

Warren worked across a broad spectrum of disciplines during the course of a 7-year tenure at the CSIRO. Fields as diverse as radical polymerisation of diallylamine monomers (at the division of applied organic chemistry) to chemical engineering, and controlled release of veterinary pharmaceuticals (at the division of Animal Production) were traversed during this time. With the dawn of the 90s, Warren registered as a patent attorney, commencing in his area of speciality, applied chemistry and methods of treatment of diseased states in animals and humans.

Warren’s modus operandum has always put client service and quality first. Warren’s reward? The satisfaction of a raft of listed and private companies whose businesses have significantly increased in value as a result of his assistance as their patent attorney.

A patient man, known for his tenacity, Warren has never lost a staring competition with his home-brewed beer and produces a brave if not aggressive drop for the private collection.

What our clients say about us

I am fortunate to have come across Baxter IP upon which I was referred to Warren Chandler. Integrity. Transparency. Committed and moreover the passion he possess for his work reflects the efficient workflow of IP application with ease and precision. Aside from his professionalism and expertise, Warren acts in his client's best interest and has fair perspectives on cost management. I look forward to working with him on other patents I have in the future. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed dealing with the team at Baxter IP, everything was handled swiftly and would have no hesitation in returning to them for additional services in what they specialise in.

  • — Natalie Wen

I had an idea and called Baxter IP and they put me onto Warren Chandler, I could not have asked for a better introduction to patenting a product. I found Warren to be very helpful, understanding, and precise. He made the information he gave me easy to understand considering how complicated these processes are. I had no idea what to do or how to do it but Warren walked me through every process and made the decisions so easy. We have now filed for a provisional patent and will look forward to taking our idea internationally with the help of Baxter IP.
