We are also honoured to have seven recommended individuals from DCC, including four individuals in the prosecution list (which is more than any other Australian firm): David Webber; Richard Brown; Bill Pickering; and Michael Caine; and three individuals in the contentious area: Ian Pascarl; Rodney De Boos; and Richard Jarvis.
Below are some quotes from the publication:
Head of patents, David Webber can effortlessly manage even the largest portfolios. The “superb strategist” also wins plaudits for his deft handling of oppositions. Fellow high-technology maven Richard Brown has a deep research background and has contributed a great deal to the scientific community through his lectures and publications. Biotechnology and medicinal chemistry are the metiers of top patent attorney Bill Pickering, a thought leader on immunology affairs who is regularly called on for support in tough litigations. Michael Caine helms the organic chemistry division; through his precisely tailored advice, he has gained the complete confidence of local research institutes and international pharmaceutical giants alike. The firm also enjoys a growing profile in the contentious arena, where Ian Pascarl has proved his mettle on strategically important cases. The firm’s practitioners and clients all benefit from the sage counsel of luminaries and senior consultants Rodney De Boos and Richard Jarvis.
The guide quoted comments from a client they received while conducting their research including:
The trophies glittering on the mantelpiece at Davies Collison Cave give testament to the fact that it has always been at the vanguard of Australian IP practice. The set is a front-runner in the filing statistics; market- leading technology and life science companies appreciate its meticulous drafting of commercially meaningful patents.
