Effective appeal to Federal Court

We were instrumental in a landmark appeal to the Federal Court of Australia from the decision of a Delegate of the Commissioner of Patents concerning computer-implemented inventions.  We also executed a subsequent appeal to the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia and application for special leave to appeal to the High Court of Australia.
