GILBERT + TOBIN has attracted five new partners with expertise in patent litigation, property, and transactions in the communications and technology sectors.

One of Australia’s leading patent litigators, Anthony Muratore, and experienced patent litigator Lisa Taliadoros have joined the intellectual property and litigation practice from Freehills.

Two leading property specialists, academic and practitioner Diane Skapinker and practitioner Christine Burke, have joined the real estate and projects practice from Minter Ellison.

In the next few months, Julian Courtney-Stubbs will join the corporate, communications and technology practice from Hong Kong, where he has been leading international firm Bird & Bird’s Asia corporate group.

Muratore is one of Australia’s leading IP litigators who has established a reputation acting in complex patent proceedings, many of which have been the Australian proceedings of multi-jurisdictional patent disputes.

He is consistently ranked as a leading Australian practitioner in the intellectual property field, including by Chambers Global and The Asia-Pacific Legal 500.

Taliadoros has acted in many significant patent disputes including revocation/infringement actions and patent office proceedings and appeals.

She worked for more than eight years as a research scientist at key Australian research institutes, including CSIRO, and is also an academic at the University of New South Wales where she teaches intellectual property regulation and policy.

Skapinker is an expert in property law, specialising in major projects, property developments, complex land titling, acquisitions and disposals, large commercial and industrial leases, telecommunications, PPPs, and easements and covenants.

Burke is a specialist in major property projects, property developments, complex land titling, acquisitions and disposals, and large commercial and industrial leases. She is also expert in the property law aspects of corporate mergers, acquisitions and finance transactions.

Courtney-Stubbs has long-standing experience advising clients in the technology, e-commerce, life sciences, communications and aviation sectors.

He focuses particularly on private equity, M&A transactions and joint ventures, invariably with a cross-border flavour, for private and public companies as well as venture capital and other external investors.

He is qualified as a solicitor in Hong Kong, England and Wales, and Australia.
