“The Steel Blue team have been dealing with David for my entire 12 year period as CEO of Steel Blue and the reason for this is simple. He cares about our business and the people within it, he offers practical solutions to complex issues, he is proactive and willing to give up his own time without charge to sit in our Board IP committees. David has also built a wonderful team of IP specialists who have a similar culture.”

Gary Johnson

Chief Executive Officer, Steel Blue Boots, Perth

“I have been working with Dave for many years. While he and his team have always provided toprate legal support, his responsiveness is really spectacular. I often get an answer within the hour no matter the time of day, and every time it is thoughtful, succinct, and clear. He has a really wide knowledge of trademark matters include complex issues. He is a pleasure to work with.”

“I found Dave's advice to be clear and concise and he always did what he said he would do. My experience with him and his team was incredibly positive, and he delivered promptly and effectively. I was able to finalise my matter without unnecessary complications. Dave and his team are excellent communicators and I never felt like I was in the dark or was out of the loop.”
