About Me

“Intellectual property is simply the most interesting area of law. It is tangible, exciting, accessible and, as consumers, we interact with it every day.” 

My primary passion is for brands, every business has one and its development is of critical importance. The complex role of a brand in delivering a message about both the product and the consumer is fascinating. A brand is not just a trade mark, it is much, much more than that. The digital age has thrust copyright into the foreground and of all IP rights, it perhaps has the most challenges but the greatest opportunities. Patents, designs and know-how all have crucial and specific roles to play in allowing a business to grow and remain unique.

Jason has specialised in IP since the start of his career in London in 1997 and he’s amassed considerable experience in terms of how IP rights interrelate and how they can be used to grow and retain value in a business.

Jason’s broad experience covers all aspects of contentious and non-contentious IP issues, including commercialisation, infringement, licensing, sponsorship, passing off, media, domain names, anti-counterfeiting and due diligence. 
Jason has a commercial and practical approach. He likes to solve problems and provide workable, sensible solutions.

Jason held a number of intellectual property related positions in the UK (Gouldens, GlaxoSmithKline, Shell, Hammonds) before joining Russell McVeagh in Auckland in 2005 and then the newly founded practice of Hudson Gavin Martin in 2007. He has been fortunate to work with many leading national and global brands.
