Darren FitzGerald, managing partner of FitzGerald Lawyers: “We are delighted to have Hans join.  He is vastly experienced in intellectual property, particularly as regards patent prosecution and IP registration.  His practice dovetails with our existing transactional and contentious IP offerings.  Together we will provide clients with a full suite of sophisticated IP services throughout Asia Pacific.”

According to Hans: “I look forward to leading FitzGerald Lawyers' IP practice to the next level.  We’re driven to combine quality advice on par with large international firms with the personal service and reasonable charges of a boutique.  I am confident this is a recipe for success for our clients and by extension all of us at FitzGerald Lawyers.”
