Stuart Gibson has joined Macpherson Kelley in Melbourne as a principal and member of the firm’s commercial team.
Gibson has extensive experience in intellectual property and entertainment law, with a particular bent for defamation matters. He has worked with high-profile individuals and businesses, and advises many of Australia’s leading retail brands including Brett Blundy Retail Group, and global brands Lovisa, Honey Birdette, Bassike and State of Escape Accessories.
“IP disputes and defamation matters are not for the faint of heart. They require a strong resolve and in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of law. Stuart is unafraid to call a spade a spade and this resonates with our firm’s value of talking straight and providing no-nonsense advice,” said Grant Guenther, the firm’s national managing principal lawyer
Gibson’s addition to the team and experience in some of Australia’s landmark IP judgments will bolster the existing skills of the firm’s practice group.
