Frances DrummondNorton Rose Fulbright

Norton Rose Fulbright is well-positioned to act for large domestic and multinational brands, partially due to its ‘strong global footprint’ and its ‘extensive networks through the global IP community that can be brought to bear on any issue’. Primarily based in the firm’s Sydney-based office, the IP group advises on a full range of issues involving patents, trade marks, copyrights, designs, and trade secrets, both contentious and non-contentious. It also has strengths in franchise law, and sectors including life sciences and healthcare, consumer goods, energy, and financial services. The team is led by Frances Drummond – ‘a straight-shooter’ with deep expertise in trade mark law. Georgina Hey and Jackie O’Brien are also recommended. Senior associate Alyson Poole is also noted.
