QANTM IP CEO Resigns – Replaced by former Xenith IP CEO

In breaking news, the CEO of QANTM IP, Leon Allen, has resigned to be replaced by Craig Dower, the former CEO of Xenith IP. Craig Dower was no doubt at a loose end as you will remember Xenith IP has recently been acquired by IPH.

Leon Allen had been managing partner of Davies Collison Cave for many years before that firm listed as QANTM IP together with FPA Patent Attorneys (formerly Freehills Patent Attorneys).  He then became CEO of QANTM IP.  His legacy includes the fostering of Davies Collison Cave, one of the most respected and admired patent attorney firms in Australia; an enduring dedication to the education of the profession; and the establishment of a listed patent attorney firm which, despite all the corporate shenanigans of the last year or so, has successfully and profitably navigated the very new world of the ASX.  He was, and no doubt still is, a loyal servant both to his firm and the profession.  He will stay on as a non-executive director of QANTM IP – which they will need as neither the new CEO or the board have significant experience in the strange world of patent attorneys.

Let’s see what Craig Dower will bring to the table when he commences on 9 January 2020…
