She brings, it went on, “extensive experience in patents, designs, and IP strategy and commercialisation, working across sectors including engineering, robotics and control systems, sporting technologies, transportation and consumer products, building systems and construction, mining, agricultural technologies and manufacturing”.

“We are delighted to welcome Allira as a new patent partner at Dentons. Allira’s extensive experience, coupled with her deep commercial insights are a valuable addition to the team,” he said.

Dentons patent team lead Dr Andrew Baker added: “Dentons’ patents team is a leader in Australasia. We are very excited about Allira joining us. She is a leader in her field and a force to be reckoned with.”

Ms Hudson-Gofers noted: “I am delighted to be joining Dentons’ highly regarded patents team and can’t wait to further develop their offering in Australasia. I’m also looking forward to connecting my clients to the talent and opportunities that being part of the world’s largest law firm brings.”
