    Shane has a specialist interest in licensing and assignment of intellectual property and is a leading authority on Design matters. While his client base has a local and international reach, he is closely involved in international intellectual property protection for indigenous Irish companies.

    Shane has degrees from both TCD and UCD in Dublin. He is a regular guest lecturer on computer law and intellectual property for both universities and is frequently invited to speak at international conferences, business seminars and workshops. Shane gives annual tutorials to students sitting the Irish Trade Mark Attorney examinations and provides assistance to the Irish Patents Office in the reviewing of Trade Mark exam scripts.

    In order to expedite implementation of the Trade Mark Harmonisation Directive, Shane drafted Trade Mark legislation which was introduced as a Private Members Bill and was a precursor to the Irish Trade Marks Act, 1996. Shane was Chairman of the Trade Marks and Designs Committee of the Association of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys (APTMA) and in this role provided advice to APTMA members during the passage of both the Trade Mark and Design primary Legislation in Ireland.

    Shane is a committee member of ECTA.


    Members are invited to submit any questions they would like to discuss during the meeting to Jessica Fross at Jess.H.Fross@gmail.com
