After graduating with a Bachelor of Laws LL.B (Hons) degree from the University of London in 1999, Ivan joined Mirandah Asia the following year as a Legal Executive and spent the next 5 years developing as well as honing his skills as a Trademarks specialist. He left to further his career with other notable boutique Intellectual Property legal firms where he gained a great degree of knowledge, insight and experience in the areas of Patents, Industrial Designs, Franchising as well as Copyrights. In addition, he also gained valuable experience in the area of IP enforcement, having assisted with as well as organized numerous raid actions for several notable brands together with the relevant enforcement authorities. The experience and knowledge gained over the years led him to return to Mirandah Asia.
Ivan re-joined Mirandah Asia and manages clients’ trademark portfolios across a wide variety of sectors, assisting clients with the prosecution and protection of their brands across ASEAN.
Ivan spends his leisure time either in the garden, going for a run with his kids or catching up on some reading.
