jeremy robinson

Jeremy Robinson is a patent attorney and lawyer based in Melbourne.

Jeremy enjoys the challenge of maximising value for his clients — and understands that this requires a multi-faceted approach recognising the different technical, legal, and commercial challenges inherent when managing intellectual property. 

He is driven to achieve the best IP outcome for clients, whether they are a local inventor passionately bringing a new idea to the world, a research institute whose scientists are leaders in their field, or a significant national or international company looking to maximise their rights in Australia and globally.  To this end, Jeremy brings both professionalism and enthusiasm to the work he does for, and with, clients. 

Jeremy has a background in physics, which included both research and commercialisation.  He enjoys working on a wide range of technologies and is particularly strong working in software, optics, medical devices, telecommunications (in particular mobile devices), gaming products and green technologies. 

With computer implemented inventions developing into a particular difficult area of patent law, Jeremy has developed expertise in navigating this difficult landscape.  He has successfully represented clients with computer implemented inventions at hearings by IP Australia (Australian Patent Office), and helped clients obtain granted patents in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Europe, and many other jurisdictions. Jeremy takes pride in staying up to date with legal developments in this area and providing accurate advice in relation to such subject matter issues, based on the most recent developments here and abroad. 

Jeremy began his IP career in New Zealand before moving to Australia and retains a special interest for intellectual property in his home country.
