Garmond ICEE Folding Box – IP, Estate Planning, Corporate Advice

“We were introduced to mdp via a recommendation from a trusted professional partner to our business. Our initial enquiry was for IP protection for a start up enterprise, and based on the success of that experience, we have now used mdp for estate planning, and corporate structure advice. mdp is a unique boutique practice, that provides the intellectual competence of the large firms together with the personalised service that is engaging and comfortable. The personality of the firm is reflected across the entire team, or more correctly the team creates the personality of the firm. Competent, confident, engaged, and not a hint of hubris. It is a pleasure to work with this team.”

- Gary Skinner, Managing Director

Leighton O’Brien Pty Ltd

“mdp has been advising Leighton O’Brien since 1998. The great benefit of the firm’s advice is that while it is of a commercial nature, it is also based on the foundation of a sound corporate commercial strategy. mdp has given us advice in relation to international licensing agreements and negotiated contracts with our international partners. We have also consulted mdp for advice on our corporate structure, both in Australia and overseas. The difference between other firms’ legal advice and the advice of mdp is the commercial acumen that is at the heart of the firm’s culture. When you work with mdp, you work with and develop relationships with the entire firm, not just Michael McDonald. We would not hesitate to recommend mdp to any business because of their practical and commercial approach that has helped us to successfully grow our business.”

- Reed Leighton, CEO
