Why Solubility

Our edge

We’re a tight group. We offer a nimble service from assigned staff, where you’ll always speak to the same person.

There are no intermediaries to delay (or add costs) to the task at hand.  We like to sit at your table to understand your needs and deliver a timely result.

As well as being lawyers, everyone at Solubility has qualifications in science.  As award-winning leaders and certified experts, we’ve become the go-to team for IP and commercialisation law solutions from a wide group of Australian and global companies requiring this specialised skill.

We have established long-term relationships too. Our Founder has had working relationships with former CSL executives for 25 years, with Blamey Saunders for 17 years, and GBS and Brandon Capital investees for 12 years.  We’re happy to arrange a reference should you wish.

We also know what we’re not good at and have developed a strong local and international referral network of patent and trade marks attorneys and other specialist advisers.  If we can’t help, we’re happy to arrange a referral for you.
