AJ Park is delighted to announce the promotions of Jessica Tye and Dr Laura Hollingsworth to senior associate.

Both members of the Sydney office, Jessica specialises in the strategic protection and enforcement of trade marks and Laura specialises in industrial designs and mechanical and manufacturing innovations.

Before joining AJ Park, Jessica worked for intellectual property law firms in New Zealand and the United States.

‘I am very excited and honoured to receive this promotion. AJ Park is an exceptional firm and it is a pleasure to work with such a highly skilled and dynamic team focussed on specialised and outstanding client service.’
