Dentons has appointed former Spruson & Ferguson principal patent attorney Tam Huynh as a new partner in its patents team.

Huynh is qualified to practise in both Australia and New Zealand. She brings significant experience from the engineering and information and communication technology (ICT) patents field, specifically in relation to engineering and ICT-related inventions.

She has prosecuted and managed patent portfolios across fields like electrical and telecommunication technologies, software and computer-implemented systems, mining and automation, audio and signal processing technologies, and consumer products.

Recently, Huynh secured a deposition for use in the infringement proceedings of a patent infringement matter in the US that involved automated media devices. Before she ventured into IP, she worked in the specialist industrial cables sector.

She will operate from the firm’s Sydney office.
