Griffith Hack announces merger in Perth

Griffith Hack announces merger in Perth

Griffith Hack, an intellectual property law firm, has announced an expansion, with specialist WA firm Mallon & Co set to merge its Perth operations into the Griffith Hack offices.

GRIFFITH Hack, an intellectual property law firm, has announced an expansion, with specialist WA firm Mallon & Co set to merge its Perth operations into the Griffith Hack offices.

A technology and intellectual property (IP) law firm, Mallon & Co’s client base attracted Griffith Hack to its operations. Its clients range from the mining and resources sector to retail, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and skincare.

The friendly merger is seen as a win-win for both companies, Griffith Hack said. Mallon & Co is now able to benefit from the established national infrastructure of an industry leader, while Griffith Hack continues to expand its IP law group.

Griffith Hack now boasts full IP support services to high-profile clients around Australia, with offices located in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane.

“We see this as a huge boost to our Perth practice, and our expansion into the IP law space,” said Griffith Hack chairman, Tony Ward.

Paul Mallon, director of Mallon & Co, says the amalgamation means the firm can still provide local service to WA clients, but being supported by a national infrastructure.

“It actually strengthens our IP capability in WA, by being able to provide a broader range of IP services to our existing and future clients,” he said.

Mallon & Co was established in 2005 and comprises four IP legal experts. The announcement means Griffith Hack will be led by 30 principals and include 61 fee earners, with an employee base of 253 across four offices.
