We are pleased to announce the appointment of Jeff Holman to Managing Partner, from 1 July 2021.

Jeff has a strong reputation within the profession, the firm and among his clients as a registered Australian and New Zealand patent attorney. He specialises in chemistry, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, polymers, materials, nanotechnology, and medical device patents.

Jeff takes over from Tom Melville, who was appointed Managing Partner in 2014. Under Tom’s leadership, Madderns has grown, maintained an enviable culture, attracted outstanding new talent and continued to assist a wonderful and diverse portfolio of clients to take their great ideas to the world.

Tom will now have more time to immerse himself in client-focussed work at Madderns, including leading the firm’s engineering practice and contributing to the board.
