WHAT WE DO

We formulate intellectual property strategies that align with the commercial goals of an organisation.  In doing so, we work closely with the CEO and senior management and can engage at a board level.

A good example of where we can add value is in circumstances where an organisation is looking to raise capital or go to IPO and needs to explain their IP position to external investors.  In those circumstances, we can conduct an independent audit of the organisation’s IP position, formulate and document an IP strategy in consultation with management, draft board papers and present to the board, and draft and verify the relevant sections of the prospectus.

We also work to implement the IP strategy of such organisations including portfolio management and identifying innovations.

WHO WE ARE

Damian Slizys LLB (Hons) BSc (Hons) Phd 

I am a former equity partner of a large patent attorney firm.  I am a registered patent attorney and have qualified as a solicitor.  I have a doctorate in Chemistry.  I specialise in the pharma and biotech industries and also have an interest in clean and renewable energy.

I also invest in early stage companies where my expertise is relevant and useful.

I am interested in the business of patents:

  • the business of patent attorney firms
  • the business of companies that rely on patents as a core asset
  • the use of the patent system to achieve commercial objectives.
