Macpherson Kelley is pleased to announce six promotions to kick off 2022, including a promotion to Principal and another to Special Counsel within the IP team.

After achieving great success and recognition as a leading lawyer in the Australian intellectual property and trade mark landscape, Mark Metzeling has been promoted to Principal within Brisbane’s Commercial team.

Ranked in World Trademark Review for a variety of IP and trade mark categories, Mark’s considered advice and dedication to his role is one of the many factors leading to his promotion. His diverse network of clients, from start-ups to national subsidiaries of global corporations, demonstrates that no matter is too big or small for quality expertise.

Also joining Mark as a promotion within the National IP team is Nils Versemann based out of Dandenong. Nils has been promoted to Special Counsel in Victoria’s Commercial team and has proven to be a vital asset to the firm.

Nils consistently impresses clients and colleagues with his strong technical skills, work ethic and his commercial and pragmatic approach to matters. His close client relationships enable him to raise opportunities or pro-actively mitigate their risks – while building his practice at the same time.

“Mark and Nils have demonstrated exceptional technical expertise complimented by a focus on client service and strengthening relationships that has resulted in enormous trust and respect from clients and colleagues alike,” said National Managing Principal Lawyer Grant Guenther.

“It is great to see the strength of our National IP team continue to grow as does the diversity in their client base. Congratulations to them both.”

Mark and Nils are joined by Catherine Tan (Melbourne), June Lee (Sydney), Lachlan Henry (Brisbane) who have all been promoted to Senior Associate and Veronica Voulgaris (Dandenong) who has been promoted to Associate.
