Elliot Papageorgiou is a well-established figure in the market who is distinguished for his "excellent" work on both contentious and non-contentious patent issues.

Biography

Elliot Papageorgiou advises international companies on contentious and non-contentious IP issues, with a special focus on business-centric IP (and especially patent) portfolio development, strategic and cross-border IP enforcement and litigation involving China and the Asia-Pacific. He has managed a range of strategic trademarks, design, copyright and, in particular, patent projects for multinational clients. His client briefs include developing IP strategies for one of Europe's largest VC funds; global automotive technology brands’ global engineering and manufacturing conglomerates; and some of Europe’s best-known FCMG, and jewellery brands.

A selection of significant successes include winning “patent claw-back” litigation for one of Europe's largest engineering groups and protecting the client's trade secrets in the process; winning patent defence litigation before the Supreme People's Court for Europe's largest engineering conglomerate; advising one of Europe's largest venture capital funds on strategic China IP acquisitions for its invested companies; winning numerous patent infringement lawsuits for a global infrastructure engineering group in China and across the Asia-Pacific; winning patent, utility model and design infringement lawsuits for a global filtration company; and developing a Chinese freedom-to-operate and IP strategy for one of Europe's largest automotive-parts suppliers, including IP mapping and competitor-threat analyses.

Elliot is a fluent speaker of several languages, namely German, Serbian, Croatian, Hungarian and English. His Mandarin is still a “work in progress”. Elliot is a solicitor (England and Wales), an attorney-at-law (NY), and barrister and solicitor (Vic), with BCom, BEc (Murdoch), LLB (honours) (Monash) and BCL honours (St Catherine's College, Oxford) degrees.
