Steve DaveyManaging Director, Stellar IP Law
I completed a combined degree in Physics and Law in 2005 and was admitted as a Solicitor in 2006.
I completed a Masters of Intellectual Property in 2010 to become a Patent and Trade Mark Attorney.
As a lawyer, I gained experience in Federal Court litigation in relation to patent, trade mark and design infringement.
As a patent attorney, I have been responsible for the preparation of hundreds of patent applications for mechanical and software inventions and prosecuted those applications to grant.
As a trade mark attorney, I managed a large trade mark practice.
As an inventor, I developed and patented software for automated trade mark monitoring which I called VISIMARK®. The software notifies me if a trade mark application is filed which conflicts with a prior application or registration.
The software monitored approximately 100,000 trade marks in the carriage of firms within the corporate group of IPH Limited. These firms include (1) Spruson & Ferguson Sydney, (2) Spruson & Ferguson Melbourne (formerly Corrs Chambers Westgarth Melbourne), (3) Cullens, (4) Fisher Adams Kelly Callinans and (5) Pizzeys.
I received a patent royalty fee from IPH Limited, which enabled me to start my own law firm, Stellar IP Pty Ltd.
I am the Managing Director of Visimark Pty Ltd, which commercializes my monitoring software (see www.visimark.com.au).
I am the Managing Director of Reinclonation Pty Ltd, which provides animal cloning services (see www.reinclonation.com). I am also a part owner of a horse stud called Catalina Stud Pty Ltd, which has horses and stables used during the horse cloning and IVF process.
I also wrote script for a TV series set during the Crusades period with Adjunct Professor Jeffery Butz of Penn State University (see https://steviedavey.wixsite.com/illuminati) which was optioned to Associated Producers Ltd of Canada (which regularly makes film productions with James Cameron).
