IP Gateway is proud to announce that Jack King-Scott has joined the firm as of July this year and will be spearheading the future development of IP Gateway’s patent practice in Queensland and New South Wales.

Jack is a Registered Patent Attorney in Australia and New Zealand, who has specialised in Intellectual Property (“IP”) protection since 2009. Jack qualified as a Patent and Trade Marks Attorney and rose through the ranks of a Brisbane patent attorney firm before joining IP Gateway.

Jack holds a Bachelor of Science with Honours from the University of Queensland majoring in molecular biology, a joint PhD from the EMBL-Hamburg and the University of Dundee in X-ray crystallography and a Masters of Industrial Property from the University of Technology, Sydney.

With Jack and his skillset being added to the firm, the Life Science Division of IP Gateway will be enhanced along with Dr Alison McMillan who has a PhD in Polymer Chemistry and Dr Christy Grobbler who has a PhD in Microbiology and Environmental Engineering.

Jack’s specialities lay in drafting, filing and prosecuting patent applications, and managing patent portfolios for his clients both in Australia and internationally.

He also specialises in patent oppositions, filing and prosecution strategies, and providing commercialisation advice from an IP perspective.

Jack began his professional life as a research scientist before moving across and finding his passion in IP law.  He now maintains a broad practice in all aspects of IP law, including patents and designs, with emphasis on patent protection in the following technology areas:

  • Life sciences
  • Medical devices
  • Mechanical technologies
  • Construction, building products and materials
  • Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV; “drone”) based technologies

He takes great pride in forming solid, long-lasting relationships with his clients and offering straight-up, pragmatic and strategic IP advice. Jack enjoys nothing more than seeing his clients’ businesses succeed and grow through robust IP protection of their core technologies.

The team at IP Gateway welcome Jack to the firm.
