Emma Lees, a patent attorney with Freehills Patent Attorneys, has been awarded the prestigious Institute Prize for 2013 from the Institute of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys of Australia (IPTA). IPTA is the peak industry body representing Australian registered patent attorneys.
The Institute Prize is awarded to a recently qualified patent attorney who has displayed excellent academic performance in the final exams and also has displayed qualities in terms of professionalism and client interactions which illustrate that they will be a credit to the profession. From all accounts, Emma was at the head of a very strong field (including many recently qualified Freehills Patent Attorneys).
We congratulate Emma on being awarded the Institute Prize for 2013.
