Description:

FICPI is an association of intellectual property attorneys in private practice, which today can boast a growing membership of approximately 3800 in over 80 countries. Some of the aims of FICPI are to liaise with national and regional IP offices as well as other groups, such as the World Intellectual Property Organisation, to provide a balanced perspective of the needs of IP users, the clients of FICPI members, in relation to intellectual property protection, and to foster international cooperation within the profession of intellectual property attorneys in private practice. FICPI is governed by its Executive Committee, which is made up of a delegate and an alternative delegate from each affiliated national section or association, including Australia. FICPI conducts its activities through voluntary member participation, and its functions and activities are the responsibility of specific commissions. By far the largest commission is the CET, the Study & Work Commission, which is responsible for the supervision and examination of developments in international and national legislation as well as for the preparation of opinions by FICPI that are presented to relevant authorities. The CET members work within a number of sub-groups specialising in the main branches of intellectual property protection. Currently these are: international and European trade mark issues; designs issues; international and European patent issues; life sciences and chemistry issues; IP litigation issues; software issues; and traditional knowledge issues. The successful functioning of the CET relies on input from its members. Membership is open to all members of FICPI Australia, with the approval of its executive Council. Further information on FICPI is available at its website www.ficpi.org. FICPI Australia is governed by its Articles of Association, which require the election of an executive Council for three year terms. The Council is made up of a President, a Secretary, a Treasurer, the immediate past President and six ordinary council members. You are encouraged to contact any Council member, and contact details of selected members are given on this website. Membership of FICPI Australia is restricted to Australian Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys who are principals or partners in private practice firms or are in sole practice with more than one client.
