David has been responsible for large patent and design portfolios for local and international clients, with a particular focus on creating flexible and affordable intellectual property strategies for scaling ventures. David has drafted, prosecuted, and advised on thousands of registered intellectual property rights in an expansive array of industries including aerospace technology, home appliances and consumer products, designer articles, fitness equipment, agricultural equipment, mining, robotics, food processing technology, sport technology, and computer-implemented inventions.

Building on an extensive experience obtaining patents outside of Australia, David has determined the global enforcement and filing strategies of major Australian patent filers, while also appearing at hearings on behalf of his clients at the Australian Patent Office.

Prior to becoming a patent attorney, David was a co-inventor for a startup in the field of composite materials for high performance roadbikes after working in the technical methods team for a landing gear manufacturer in France and in non-destructive evaluation for an airframe manufacturer in Germany. He has also worked in research roles at Imperial College London in the material characterization team and the Technische Universität Clausthal-Zellerfeld in Germany verifying computational fluid dynamics models.
