Minter Ellison hires intellectual property and patent and trademark litigators
Minter Ellison has announced that two Australian intellectual property (IP) and patent and trademark litigators, and their team, have joined the firm.
The move by Wayne McMaster and Robert Cooper to Minter Ellison in Melbourne as partners, and the transfer of their combined portfolio of work, was agreed with their previous firm King & Wood Mallesons. McMaster and Cooper have brought across a team of 13 to Minter Ellison.
McMaster has been an IP lawyer and patent attorney for more than 30 years. At King & Wood Mallesons, he was the immediate past head of that firm’s national IP practice and health and pharma practice.
Cooper has been an IP lawyer for 20 years and is also a registered trademarks attorney. He handles disputes, licensing issues and trademark registrations.
