Anja Bartels, Associate at FB Rice, shares her experience and insight on how you can minimise the risks of losing your IP rights.

Anja is an Associate in our Perth office, and specialises primarily in ICT, medical devices, electrical engineering and business methods, with experience in renewable energy, mechanical engineering and mining engineering.

Originally from Germany, Anja has a strong focus on the European, and in particular the German market, and uses her knowledge and experience from time spent working and studying in Germany to her clients’ advantage in preparing their global IP strategy.

Her local clients benefit from her broad international experience in the commercialisation of IP projects, as well as her years of experience practicing as a registered Patent Attorney in the Australian IP space.   Her practice has covered drafting and prosecution of patent applications, giving infringement and validity advice and preparing freedom to operate analysis.  Her previous role at a financial consulting firm has given her an excellent understanding of the commercialisation of inventions, and this experience allows Anja to provide clients and associates with the most financially beneficial IP advice.

Anja enjoys the commercialisation process of intellectual property from all aspects, and acts as a mentor at a start-up and entrepreneurs community, providing advice to new businesses on intellectual property, ensuring it is well protected and how to best make it work for them.

Anja speaks German fluently, and is a registered Australian Patent and Trade Marks Attorney.
