“I see my role as working with my clients all the way from a new idea to a new product in the marketplace. Clients come to me because they want clear advice, not just a list of options.”

Mark’s experience includes Post-Doctoral and professional work at the University of New South Wales and the University of Queensland. Mark spent two years as a Research Scientist with the Defence Science and Technology Organisation before specialising in Intellectual Property protection and bringing that capability to Fisher and Kelly (now Fisher Adams Kelly Callinans) in 1993.
