Luxton boasts significant experience working with domestic and multinational companies in various IP transactions. He has acted as lead attorney in several patent matters in the Australian Federal Court and has been involved in many opposition matters before the Australian Patent Office.  

Tim Walden, managing partner at James & Wells, expressed excitement over Luxton’s appointment.

“We are fortunate to have Adam join the team and expand our Australian operations in such uncertain times,” he said. “While other firms are consolidating, James & Wells is expanding its global presence, and remains dedicated to providing client focussed, independent intellectual property services.”

Meanwhile, Luxton said he was “very happy and proud” to be part of the IP firm’s partnership.

“I’ve known several of the James & Wells partners for many years and have always admired from afar the culture of the firm and the successes they have achieved,” he said.
