We care. It’s why we exist in the first place.

A patent attorney for 25 years, Wayne Slater developed a vision for practising intellectual property law that was based on a set of four pillars: science, law, business and people management. With a natural affinity for engaging people, and a true willingness to listen to their story, he began to see that aligning intellectual property law with commercial objectives to meet the needs of his clients was the only way to ensure customer satisfaction.

Wishing to align his personal motives with this new outlook, Wayne created a new business model practised by IP Gateway: a firm that provides impeccable personalised service through customised intellectual property solutions matched to your business goals.

That vision continues today, with IP Gateway’s reputation as a firm who knows, cares and therefore guides.  IP Gateway is firmly established in the Australian intellectual property law landscape.

“The IP Gateway team is not only very professional, but very personable.  They are always friendly, knowledgeable and always have time for us.  Each team member always explains their recommendations in detail until they are satisfied we understand them and are comfortable with the approach.”
