Macpherson Kelley is pleased to announce that newly appointed Principal Lawyer, Stuart Gibson has joined the Commercial team in Victoria.

Stuart is an acclaimed lawyer with notable experience in Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law – with a particular bent for defamation matters. Stuart is passionate about his practice and has worked with high-profile individuals and businesses.

In addition to this work, Stuart 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 National Managing Principal Lawyer, Grant Guenther.

“Stuart’s ability to fiercely advocate for his clients will be an incredible asset to individuals and businesses looking to put safeguards in place to protect their reputation and brand.”

The appointment is a big win for Macpherson Kelley’s IP team who is already going from strength to strength having recently gained recognition from WTR 1000 for Trademark Prosecution and Strategy.

Stuart’s addition to the team and experience in some of Australia’s landmark IP judgments will bolster the existing skills of the talented practice group.

“My approach to each matter is different from the next and I am unafraid to seek out creative solutions to get a great result. Macpherson Kelley’s reputation for putting clients first resonates for this bespoke approach to law,” Stuart said.
