Fiona’s pretty familiar with the demands of the IP game. Having fine-tuned her skills working in the Hamilton patents team, Fiona has stepped up to the plate as a Solicitor of our commercial and trade mark law teams. Her dual skill-set enables her to provide commercially-savvy advice to Kiwi’s getting their ideas off the ground.Like any outdoors-mad Kiwi, Fiona soaks up the countryside by hiking in the surrounding Waikato hills and mountains. Originally hailing from the Mount, summertime for her means getting out in the water. For the more chilled-out days, good food and a great book more than suffice.
Trade mark and commercial matters form the backbone Fiona’s practice. Based in our Hamilton office, Fiona devises a range of agreements between shareholders and partners including assignments, licensing, confidential information, trade secrets and terms and conditions. She’s a specialist in conveyancing, financing and refinancing arrangements, wills and enduring powers of attorney.
Fiona’s also well versed in trade mark prosecution and completing comprehensive trade mark searches.
She holds a Bachelor of Laws and is a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand.
Fiona is a member of the New Zealand Law Society.
