Intellectual property firm FB Rice has appointed three new associates to its Perth office, which opened its doors earlier this week.

Managing director Brett Lunn said he looked forward to working with Mary Turonek, Nick Stamatiou and Anja Bartels to the firm.

The new associates are all previous employees of Griffith Hack.

Ms Turonek will bring experience in patent prosecution and oppositions in the oil and gas sector, and will focus on a diverse range of chemistry and chemical-related industries in her patent practice.

In a statement, FB Rice said Mr Stamatiou would bring his background as a patent attorney and a qualified lawyer to his new role.

“His practice focuses around the oil and gas sectors but he also has sound experience in electrical and software engineering sectors,” the firm said.

Ms Bartels specialises in information computer technology, medical devises and renewable energy.

Mr Lunn said the firm had a long established base in the mining resources sector.

“It is a logical next step. Mary, Nick and Anja will be a natural fit with the firm’s established clients in Perth,” he said.

“As a firm, we are known for our commercially oriented approach to intellectual property portfolio management. This is also a feature of the attorneys who will be joining us, so we look forward to providing practical, results-focused, IP strategy advice to an ever-broadening range of clients.”

The Perth office officially opened on Monday.
