IP firm makes partner promotions

Melbourne-based intellectual property firm FB Rice has made two promotions to partner.

Dr Patrick McManamny (pictured) and Dr Marcus Caulfield have been promoted to partner in the firm’s biotechnology and chemistry practice.

\Both McManamny and Caulfield joined FB Rice in 2002.They act for a broad range of clients, including international corporations, start-up companies, universities, hospitals, co-operative research centres and research institutes.

McManamny is a member of the biotechnology team and counsels clients in relation to management of international patent portfolios, freedom-to-operate and validity of patents.  His practice primarily focuses on biological therapeutics, such as antibodies, peptides and stem cells.  He also has expertise in diagnostics and drug-screening technologies. 

“I am delighted to be joining the dynamic and forward-looking partnership of FB Rice.  I look forward to continuing to be a part of our firm, which is recognised as being innovative in its approach to client matters and as having a strong commercial perspective,” said McManamny.

Caulfield has a strong technical background in organic and polymer chemistry and has worked extensively with both animal and human healthcare areas with a strong emphasis on contentious matters including opposition and litigation support.

Managing partner Dr Brett Lunn said: “Patrick and Marcus’ strategic and solutions-driven approach is what clients are looking for.  With their extensive experience, both are very well placed to continue providing intelligent, well-considered, strategic advice to help clients protect their intellectual property.”
