04 Apr Meet MBIPs new team members and new office
Two new attorneys join MBIP as 2018 sees our firm expand to five patent and trademark attorneys, and take up new residence in a bespoke office within Brisbane’s Red Hill commercial precinct.
With growth in our firm, our home of four years at Taringa became too small, and in January we moved to our new premises at 159 Musgrave Road, Red Hill – just 4.5km from Brisbane’s CBD. MBIP’s new home is the former Red Hill Commonwealth Bank, a charming Art Deco building that provides the perfect environment for our growing firm. We look forward to welcoming our clients and friends to Red Hill, and we have great pleasure in introducing you to our two new staff members: Geraldine Rimmer (Trademarks Attorney) and Jeremy Moller (Patent and Trademark Attorney).
Geraldine Rimmer joins MBIP as a Trademarks Attorney, registered to practice in Australia and New Zealand and admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland. Geraldine holds degrees in Law and Arts (2000) from The University of Queensland, and a Master of Laws (Intellectual Property – 2006) from The University of Melbourne.
Geraldine has worked as a trademark practitioner since 2001, having previously worked for two Brisbane firms, where she gained experience in trademark law. Geraldine’s work has involved serving a diverse range of clients including multinational corporations, wineries, cosmetic companies, car manufacturers, food and beverage manufacturers, medical appliance developers and also a variety of local businesses.
