Intellectual Property and Technology (IP & IT) Legal Advice for Software, Tech and Startup Companies.

Ben’s extensive background in technology means he’s the go-to technology and intellectual property lawyer for companies who require a lawyer who understands their software and their business and revenue models.

Ben works between Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.


I often hear from clients who say their lawyers have trouble understanding their technology systems and business or revenue models.  To make matters worse,  some were charged by the hour as they tried to explain it to them.

I offer a free consultation to those who wish to make a time to discuss their legal matter, without obligation.  On the call, we can see if we are a good fit to potentially work together and I can also let you know of my availability.  After the call I can provide you with a proposal for legal services, if you wish.  In many cases, I am able to provide an estimate for legal fees on a fixed-fee basis.

All legal services that I provide are done so through Coast to Coast Legal Pty Ltd.

ClientBen gave far more than I ever expected from someone in the legal profession.  I had just finished organising my new business website and needed sound legal advice regarding some internet challenges that I didn’t know how to deal with.

After the first phone conversation, I was impressed.  I can honestly say Ben has the perfect personality for a successful lawyer – super friendly, knowledgeable and most of all you can tell he really wants the best for you.  I was very surprised, as my previous experiences with other lawyers has always been somewhat negative.

Before we proceeded, Ben outlined in great detail what sort of advice I was to expect from him, (something no other lawyer has ever done for me before), and I found that I could contact him at any time and he was always available to have a chat with me regarding any concerns I had.  His good advice was crucial to my making good business decisions on how to move forward.

I would highly recommend Ben to anyone wanting a lawyer who has your back, who, in my opinion, dispenses good advice, and is also very knowledgeable on how to step up your business plan.

If anyone would like to have a chat to me about Ben and my testimonial, please feel free to call me on 0407 734 746

Once again Ben, thank you.  If I could give you 11 out of 10 stars, I would.

Kind regards,
