The rankings are named annually after researchers based in London, New York and Hong Kong collect market feedback from thousands of practitioners and clients over a six month period, starting from September each year.

The Top 250 Women in IP 2019 list recognises the leading female IP practitioners in private practice who have performed exceptionally well for their clients and firms in the past year. Daneta is one of only 12 IP professionals from Australia included in the prestigious list, and one of only 3 patent attorneys in Australia.

Daneta’s practice covers a wide range of technology and intellectual property matters in South East Asia. She has a particular focus on registered designs, mechanical engineering and manufacturing, consumer products, medical technologies and the automotive industry.

Daneta said she was honoured to have received the award. “The most important part of this recognition is that it shows that what we do is highly valued by those we deal with most closely, our clients.”

“Exceptional client service is at the heart of everything we do at FPA.”

The Rising Stars award recognises some of the best up and coming IP practitioners below partner level who contribute to the success of their firms and clients.

FPA Patent Attorneys Managing Principal James Cherry said he was delighted that the firm had been recognised for its individual talent.

“We are incredibly proud of the achievements of Daneta, Alister and Akanksha and their proven ability to make a difference to the success of our clients.”

“Their skills, talent and professionalism make them inspiring role models for all patent attorney” James said.

The individual recognition follows FPA Patent Attorneys Principals James Cherry, John Dower, Tom Gumley and Chris Bird once again being included in MIP’s IP Stars list and complements the firm being awarded MIP Australian Patent Prosecution Firm of the Year 2019.
