Putting together a team to help your business succeed is almost as hard as running the business itself. Sometimes it pays to call upon external resources when you don’t have the time and necessary expertise to handle complex business transactions, along with all the associated legal issues. When you get to that point, Amy Bishop can assist you in every corner of commercial law… her expertise and know-how will be a welcome addition to your operation.
Amy is a pivotal component of both our intellectual property and corporate & commercial teams, with a wealth of knowledge in commercial, corporate, consumer, IP and privacy law, and the added skill set of being a registered trade mark attorney for Australia and New Zealand. She acts for numerous clients assisting them to achieve success through sound business structuring, which is both tax-effective and enhances intellectual property protection.
Along with her impressive commercial and corporate knowledge, and accurate understanding of the needs of small businesses, Amy is also familiar with the unique requirements of not-for-profit (NFP) clients and has advised many such organisations on a range of compliance matters.
In the intellectual property space, Amy’s expertise as a trade mark attorney comes to the fore.
